A key factor in designing interactive visualizations is what makes them good to use and; more generally; what ‚Äúgood to use‚ÄĚ means in the context of interactive visualizations. In this talk; I introduce the notion of experiential qualities as a way to articulate what ‚Äúgood to use‚ÄĚ means for a specific design domain. I then look specifically at interactive visualizations; arguing that the qualities of pliability and meaning are particularly important for the user and hence for the designer. The case for pliability and meaning is built around a number of contemporary design examples; mainly drawn from interactive information visualization.
