Beautiful Data

David McCandles pointed us to Stefanie Posavec’s work with information visualization. Her “Literary Organism” is a beautifully illustrated visualization of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road. McCandles explains, “Here the lines divide into chapters, bloom into paragraphs, sprout sentences, and spread out into words. All are colour-coded according to the key themes.”

McCandles also offers a shot of the original marked-up text and several visualizations that were created along the way.
