This week is about data. At first I thought myself not a data person but more like a visual person. So I was not very fond of using data to build practical and functional thing at the beginning. I started to look up works about the connection point between visual and data which is data visualisation.
Then I found this work on Pinterest that visualized the amount of raindrops in certain area. It not fancy, but it is consistent between the form of rain and the expression method of data and at the same time it is abstract, giving me a feeling of simplicity. I look up on the internet and found more similar works. It is interesting to see how the abstract line and color express the natural phenomenon. Like wind, smoke, water are interacting with the drawing on screen.
I started to code with this idea in mind.
I ended up with this sketch. An initial letter of wind is dragging a bunch of line holding four balls. The whole canvas is mapped to the world map silently.
Here is the sketch.
