Work In Progress – Streaming Aesthetics

This is a visualization of common colour names as they appear in the main twitter stream –

twitsthaetics.pngThis is just a screenshot, I’ll show the live version when it’s finished. The colours are placeholders and (although you can’t see it) the animation needs improving. It’s written in Processing using a Scala-based Twitter Streaming API library.If this works well I’ll do shape and pattern ones. This is a follow up to “The Colour Of…”, “Friending The Aesthetic” and “Random Aesthetics”.

    Thanks!
    I don’t have many more images at the moment but you can grab as many as you like from the software. 🙂
    I’ll present this better when I’ve finished the shape and pattern versions.
