Z: Why vis?

Node: Visualizations are external physical entities

Descriptor Externalization
Argumentative standpoint Basic
Description

An abstract visualization can be represented by an external object. This external object, i.e., the visualization, is qualitatively different to internal mental objects and the abstract visualization it represents. Being external implies that the physical world constrains the properties of the visualization object.
