This text describes an applied investigation into a concept of information visualisation where data is not rendered as graphs, charts or diagrams on the screen but as a sensual experience beyond the screen in physical space. It introduces predecessors such as calm technologies and ambient displays among a number of poetic and applied examples from related backgrounds to establish the context and relevance for communication design and graphic design, and proceeds with presenting a current research undertaking in which the social activity of visiting a website is visualised in multiple sensorial modalities in real-time in form of a kinetic and sensual display.
