Chris Riccomini recently created a piece of datavisualization by using the poems of E.E. Cummings as the data. The work is a collaboration between Chris and his sister and it was intended as complementary to his sister’s paper on the poems of Mr. Cummings.
The result is a relation-circle-like radial visualization without the relational connections. It shows all peoms with it’s lines in chronological order and displays the themes of the poems as a color coded circumference. The visualization was built using the Processing programming language and contains the whole set of poems available.
The article includes the process how the visualization was built and an analysis of the emerging findings in the visualization. View the full project description at Chris’s blog over at http://www.riccomini.name.
