several interesting dynamic data visualizations that explore the effects of fashion by creating a 'micro fashion network' with the basic elements color & time.
a camera recognized & stored dominant colors of the clothing of moving people in Cambridge's busy neighborhoods. a visualization algorithm then connected similar colors to each other to form a large color network over time. because of this preferential attachment model, a power law distribution & highly connected dense color hubs can be perceived in the resulting network diagrams. three different artistic representations are available: captured human figures, color information as abstract boxes, & the complex network of colors.
