Title

Moving Motion Metaphors

Abstract

A class of visual metaphors is introduced in which simple animation conveys meaning about motion metaphorically. Antecedents in the form of static metaphors for visually conveying motion are discussed, followed by two examples of moving motion metaphors. The second is an integral part of a new heads-up flying interface for navigating 3D environments Some concluding remarks are made concerning the practical uses of moving motion metaphors.
