This (video-) paper describes a user interface concept, which facilitates browsing of comparably large amounts of information on small screens. The viewing concept is based on a visually optimized star field display (Ahlberg & Shneiderman 1994) and is introducing new concepts like liquid browsing (an expansion lens with pressure controlled magnetic force simulation), selection based filtering and representation manipulation, multimotion behavior tagging, (interaction-) transparent spaces and continuous state animation. All these create a very versatile information space with a liquid-like look and feel, which can be used in a very intuitive way, providing all the advantages of a mature interactive scatter plot and can easily be scaled to different screen sizes without any adjustment efforts. This paper focuses on visual design and interaction details and emphasizes the importance of the visual interactive quality for mobile information visualization.
