an aesthetic web-based application for real-time social network & conversation visualization. the application visualizes information from 50 participants about who they spoke to & what they discussed during the duration of a 3-day event. the data visualization was projected on a large screen in the main summit venue to reflect the real-time state of the social network & discussion space.
each participant, upon entering information into a form, is visually represented by a flower, with a petal growing on the flower in real-time as a new conversation is entered. the flowers of individuals who have conversed with one another are connected by green vines, & the closer two flowers are distanced from each other the more those people have spoken. the concepts discussed between all participants are laid out in the background according to their frequency of use. by rolling over flowers, petals & words, different perspectives of the information can be seen.
