Ward Shelley vs Visual Complexity - The Organic and The Pragmatic

What determines a beautiful visualization? Who gets to make these distinctions? In attempting to explore the beauty of information visualized, I will explore two contrasting visions. One view will explore a pragmatic, defined vision, the other will explore an organic, real to life-as-they-know-it consideration of how to look at the data, the "stuff" that defines our lives. This research will attempt to explore and define the different approaches to beautiful information, constrained by an analysis of VisualComplexity.com, contrasted with Ward Shelley, and the ways in which they clash when content does not necessarily yield beautiful results. Exploring the richness of data is exploring the simplicity of that data, and uncovering how to represent the simple truths lying dormant within the information requires an equally rich examination of how we represent that data.

I will likely be examining them through the philosophical lenses of Kant and Dewey, who have similarly diametrically opposed views on what defines beauty. We see Dewey define the process and the experience as what is beautiful, whereas Kant finds the structure, the system that nature has natural proclivities towards, to be beautiful.
