Process: NYT Threads
This is more or less the final version. I like the fact that, while these graphs do provide some information, they are also quite chaotic.
Currently, I'm working on moving this idea forward to show 'topic threads' and to visualize how these threads are interwoven with people, organizations, and locations over time.
These images document progress in my latest attempt to visualize data from the NYTimes API. These images are chronological, and show the evolution of this small project as it progressed over the course of a day.
This project was built in Processing, v. 1.0
