The dichotomy between programs and data projects itself onto two paradigms in software visualisation: programs are visualised by program animation, and data is visualised by algorithm animation. We put forward a programming paradigm where, like functional or logic programming, and some rewriting paradigms, programs and data are represented at the same level-program are just one particular kind of data Animation of these programs/algorithms breaks the dichotomy and leads to an alternative perspective on visualisation Our paradigm is a graphical one, and thus is exceptionally well suited for visualisation.
