Holy Scriptures text map
Donato and his friends at density design through flickr do amazing work and must have been blogged by everyone who has even the slightest quivering appreciation/interest in data visualisation. On their flickr I found this piece originally thoguht to be by themselves but it is by http://similardiversity.net/project/, a project by Philipp Steinweber and Andreas Koller.
This is great that they are squeezing data visualisation off of the web and into the mainstream, i mean dont get me wrong, i might be naive and it is in gallerys, exhibitions, museums far and wide that i am unaware of, but its good to see they are.
this is partly why i wanted to make visualisation magazine to get it off the web and feeds and fed into the colleges, uni's for students, artists, other fields to engage in their subtle brilliance. i know i am probably hyping them too much... but i cant restrain my love of data vis etc.
well enough of my rants, see more shots of this here http://www.flickr.com/photos/densitydesign/1323400157/ and check out the haul of data vis by density design and donato on flickr with their work also at http://www.densitydesign.org/
