UEFA Euro 2020 matches visualized with triangle sets

Krisztina Szűcs used sets of animated triangles to show how each match played out. The triangles in the middle move up as each team scores, and the triangles on the side represent penalty kicks. Tags: Krisztina Szűcs, soccer

Sheep herding movements from above

Aerial photographer Lior Patel followed a herd of sheep in Yokneam. The results are much more interesting than they sound. [via Colossal] See also the work of Tim Whittaker who produced a video of the same ilk. I don’t know what to call it, but I am very much into this genre of calming sheep herding videos for the mind. Although I feel like herding up close must be kind...

Transform an image into a pixel-ly visual

Here’s a fun interactive by Duc-Quang Nguyen. Upload an image and get back a transformed visual that uses dots, lines, or ascii. Use the menu options to easily change resolution, colors, and shapes. It’s a combination of Georgios Karamanis’s code and Elana Levin Schtulberg’s experiment of the same ilk. Tags: Duc-Quang Nguyen, pixels, R

Generate a color analysis by uploading an image

Mel Dollison and Liza Daly made a fun interactive that lets you upload an image, and it spits out a vintage-looking color analysis a la Vanderpoel: This generator is based on the works of Emily Noyes Vanderpoel (1842-1939), who hoped her original color analyses would inspire others to study “whatever originals may be at hand in books, shops, private houses, or museums.” We hope you are similarly inspired by her...

Bird flight patterns captured through long-exposure photography

ARVE Error: src mismatchurl: https://vimeo.com/370007362src in: ?dnt=1src gen: https://player.vimeo.com/video/370007362?dnt=1Actual comparisonurl: https://vimeo.com/370007362src in: src gen: https://player.vimeo.com/video/370007362 For several years, Xavi Bou has been using long-exposure photography to capture stills of bird flight patterns. The project, Ornitographies, produced gloriously abstract images. There’s also a video (above) piece under the same premise. Jessica McKenzie, reporting for Audubon: More recently, Bou has expanded the project to video, including one called Murmurations that shows a...

Sonification of Covid-19 deaths

This is interesting: What does 425,000 Covid deaths sound like? I was inspired by this article by @LazaroGamio and @LaurenLeatherby for the NY Times, where they visualized how long to reach another 25k deaths. The piece had a rhythm that made me think of music, so I tried turning the data into sound pic.twitter.com/2YhmgqDZGQ — carni_dc (@CarniDC) February 1, 2021 Tags: coronavirus, sonification

Snowflake generator

Vivian Wu made a snowflake generator. Adjust parameters such as growth, kaleidoscoping, and density, and you dear friend, can make yourself a unique snowflake of your very own. I think I’ll just zone out and let the animation play out for a few minutes every day. Breathe in. Breathe out. Tags: generative art, snowfake, Vivian Wu

Data Sketches, the book

Data Sketches was a one-year visualization collaboration between Nadieh Bremer and Shirley Wu that started in 2016. Each month they separately visualized a topic, and at the end of each month they’d have two very different pieces that were visually unique and showed different angles of the same thing. They also documented their process and design decisions for every project, which provided another layer of depth to the work. Now...
