Want to get a visual high today? The infographic masterpiece Random Walk [random-walk.com] ask the question "What does Randomness Look Like?" It attempts to give the answer(s) by showing the mysterious interactions of chaos and the order in randomness by simulating randomness in visualizations which are easy to understand.
The portfolio webpage contains a collection of zoomable illustrations, with detailed explanations plus summary captions in the yellow speech balloons on the right. Experimental visualized datasets include the constant number pi, the so-called Poisson distribution, the empirical results behind the normal distribution, the distribution of prime numbers, the first-digit law also called Benford's Law, the surface area calculation Monte Carlo Method, the Law of Large Numbers, an atom's or molecule's Brownian Motion, an atom's Half Life, the chaotic motion of a double pendulum, pseudo random number generation, and many more.
The project's author, Daniel A. Becker, adds this project to an already impressive portfolio, including the previously posted Barcode Plantage and the for-the-infosthetics-addict still unknown Visual DNA (discover!).
Based on these works, I think we certainly will see and hear more from him in the future. Do you agree?
