pulse.jpg
a fascinating live visualisation of recent emotional expressions written on the private weblogs published on blogger.com. emotional expressions are parsed according to a list of synonyms, which then physically transform an abstract shape-shifting object.

textual expressions are assigned to 1 of 8 basic human emotions, which are represented as a 3D cone consisting of 24 distinct areas. this abstract diagram forms the basic shape of "pulse", a physical object that is able to enlarge in 24 different directions. each time a specific expressionistic emotion is found in a blog entry written during the last minute, the shapeshifting object transforms itself, so that that the new physical volume represents a piece of the world's current emotional condition.

Does anyone else find this kind creepy? Maybe if it didn't look like a bloody heart that was strung up with thread.
