Via Information Aesthetics an interesting survey of perceived emotions!

… a collection of mainly graphical results from a research project that focused on revealing how people feel anger, joy, fear, sadness & love. a simple survey asked 250 participants between the ages of 6 & 75 years from 35 different countries to graphically represent these emotions on a set of human silhouettes. the resulting drawings were compiled in layered Photoshop documents. in addition, participants could express emotions textually or choose appropriate colors. the text results were analyzed on frequency, while the color choices determine a DNA-like frequency pattern.

RjDj: The soundtrack of your life

leave a comment »

Wow! They did such a great job! While I was checking my daily dose of feeds I stumbled over RjDj. Paul Lamere had a posting on RjDj at his great MIR-related blog. So thanks Paul for fishing in the deep digital ocean. The guys behind RjDj are well-known for the great work in the PD community and now it seems to me that it has been just a matter of time until this happens. But the results are awesome. When I am back from Porto having all the GHz, biodata and urban sounds in my pockets I will create my own RjDj scenes!

Today I stumbled upon a nice app related to my ideas about creating urban maps of connectivity. I found the posting via information aesthetics. Since I have some minor experience with python I hope to get thru the code which is claimed by the author to be buggy.
