okay so here's a weird question. scott mccloud's "big triangle"— https://wordsonplay.com/2009/10/the-big-triangle/ is there a general term for this kind of thing? a space with extremes where items in the space are annotated with illustrations/representations whose position in the space corresponds to the extent to which the properties at the extremes describe them?
e.g., eadweard muybridge photo illustrations (if you unwrapped them into a single line) http://www.eadweardmuybridge.co.uk/ would be a one-dimensional example of this (where the dimension represents time); t-sne visualizations would be another example (where the dimensions don't have a set meaning) https://lvdmaaten.github.io/tsne/ maybe even the periodic table of elements would qualify https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periodic_table (though in that case the "representations" are just the names of the elements)
the new york magazine approval matrix is another example http://nymag.com/arts/all/approvalmatrix/approval-matrix-2017-03-20/
