The project proposes that the user not only visualize RSS feeds as the final receiver of the messages, but also grant the user the power to give them personality and turn reading into a dynamic, creative, and interactive experience. To do so, tools will be created that make it possible to manipulate, react, and interact with what we are reading: reconstructing the text, transforming the hierarchy, breaking sentences, agitating words, etc. We will not use the traditional clicks, menus, or buttons. They will be replaced by simple moves of the mouse to carry out all the actions. Twitter feeds will be used to start with (texts that are just one sentence long) so that they are easier to handle. RSS Sketchpad will be a Java application, made with Processing and the NextText library.
Development of the on-line version, mainly for researchers, of a database which makes it possible to visualize different types of data derived from archaeological field research. This graphic interface is a fusion of each area in the research process, such as the geographic location of the digs, the time reconstruction of each document, the excavations and studies of flora and fauna, in the same graphic composition which makes it possible to observe the contradictions and associations among each area of study. This project is part of IMRAR – International Museum of Rock Art Research – which is at the development stage.
The elaboration of a graphic structure which, using colour as an additional information channel, offers the public access through the Internet to Antoni Miralda’s artistic archive, which includes materials such as photographs, objects, videos, installations, and songs related to food culture. The project is structured on free applications (Flickr, Dailymotion and WorldPress), and 40 key words linked to a CMYK value that will unify the different types of documents comprising the archive.
Through the classification and analysis of a large repository of junk email (Spam), the SpamViz project aims to visualize and reveal patterns of social habits and behaviours, as well as to detect interrelations among the nature of Spam as a digital-cultural phenomenon, society, and the user/individual. The project will start with the analysis of various elements such as the most common types of Spam, most common words, the volume, geographic origin, etc. The results may be of artistic but also research and educational interest, used as a tool for anti-Spam research, and as a representation of today’s society or “social mirror” of fads, behaviours, and variations.
This project consists of an application for the OS X platform that gathers data related to a certain person or group via various channels. The data come from email, address books, ical, skype, icq, msn, ichat, etc. That is why it can be considered a search engine for data related to human beings. This makes it possible to follow up communication through various channels and over a larger time scale with no need to change applications.
The enourmos amount of immigrants landed in western europe over the last century has modified every aspect of its social, economical and political institutions. This project aims to reflect on some aspects of this phenomenon, offering a tool to visualize in a transversal manner the migratory flows, their causes and repercussions on the countries most involved. To do so, visuals will be generated that react not only to statistical changes but also to human interactions.
Visualization and social debate tool which aims to serve as a public, real database of empty apartments in Spain. The aim is to develop a Web platform that makes it possible for users to edit, disseminate, and store contents, in keeping with Web 2.0 philosophy. Google Maps technology will be used to locate the dwellings geographically.
The idea is to develop an interface for representing a dynamic metabolic map where the elements comprising it can be manipulated: altering their concentrations, the speed of chemical reactions, or reverting cycles. In this way, subliminal behaviour in organization and the effects of the changes on the system as a whole can be observed. Sound and music which can be created based on the graphics will also be worked with.
Given that wheeled vehicle traffic in cities is so intense that data become vague and too general, this project aims to gather and visualize manageable data about the number of cars that pass under a specific window. To do so, the following will be used: a counter connected to a computer, a database accessible from the Internet, an API, and the visualization tool.
