In a world of ever-increasing and newly discovered complexities, and rapidly expanding data sets describing man-made and natural phenomena, information visualization offers a means of structuring and enabling interpretation of these data in the context of that complexity. Advances in graphics hardware, art asset pipelines and parallelized computational platforms offer unprecedented potential. However, harnessing this potential to good effect is challenging and requires the integration of skills from the arts and social sciences to support scientific endeavor in the physical and life sciences. Here, we consider those skills and describe four case studies that highlight interoperation among disciplines at this arts-science-social science interface.
