email_circle.jpg
a data visualization application capable of rendering the relationships between the user & individuals in the address book by examining the TO:, FROM:, and CC: fields of every email in the 60,000-large email archive.

the intensity of the relationship is determined by the color intensity of the line. "My Map" allows to explore different relational groupings & periods of time, revealing the temporal ebbs & flows in various relationships. My Map thus becomes a veritable self-portrait, a visual reflection of personal associations.

Wonderful visualization. I Wish he could also change the size of the pictures to highlight only those whom he has most conversations.

Also it reminds me of a visualization project I made yars ago, visualizating the relationships of fruits in multiple fruit juices. I´ll only linkt it here because it might be relevant to the story, sorry for the self plug.

Ah, interesting. Very similar to Marcos marumushi Weskamp's 2003 Social Circles project, except Social Circles sought to define and delineate relationships between members of the same listsev.
