At Lonelyleap we are always looking at new approaches and innovative ways to tell stories in an engaging way. This week we have been looking at creative approaches to represent data differently and ways of visualising it beautifully. So this Friday’s link is on some of our favourite visualisations of data we have found online.
We feel fine
We feel fine is an exploration of human emotions from a large number of weblogs. Every few minutes the system searches the world’s newly posted blog entries for the phrases “I feel” and ‘I am feeling”. It creates a database of several million human feelings, allowing you to search feelings across a number of demographics.
The TED sphere shows videos from the TED conference in a spherical format. You can view the sphere from inside or outside and the layout of videos is based on semantic compatibility. It offers a different way to enjoy the knowledge from the vast index of TED videos.
Beethoven 5th Symphony
This is more an artistic visualisation created by Matthias Dittrich. It demonstrates the behaviour of the lines in relation to the music. The visualisation does not exactly return exact information, but the purpose is to create an aesthetically visual response with the music and the artist.
The following artwork created by Accept and Proceed visually demonstrate the data of great sporting events and rivalries, such as Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer in the 2008 Men’s Wimbledon Final and GB’s Men’s Coxless Four at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
