Check out this interactive way to enjoy LOST with Lostalgic by Santiago Ortiz

This project is based on the entire ABC’s LOST TV show scripts, 115 episodes in 7 seasons, that I managed to parse from Lostpedia. I also parsed this page with additional information about hidden characters relations. My aim for this project is not (only) to visualize some properties and patterns out of the script but actually to allow to read and enjoy the series in a different way.

Norton Campfire - created by Big Human

The world: it’s big. And Symantec’s products are used across it, like, a million times a day. Instead of burying that information in a spreadsheet, however, we worked with San Francisco-based agency Redshift to build an awesome touchscreen data visualization. You can either swoop in like a hawk to view individual stories and data, or zoom out to see the full reach of Norton’s software empire.

More @#$%&! Yeah!

The visual design of Contextus is more or less complete. Here are a few key screens and states that a user would see while navigating through it. As a test, I refined my previous experiment by placing these screens into Keynote and animated a couple of screens and interactions. More smoke and mirrors…

Now all I have to do is create specific screens for an individual’s taskflow, or rather four individuals, animate in keynote and film my actors ‘using’ Contextus in various locations. And remember to replace the lorem ipsum dummy text with something more real.

They can find answers in one of three ways: selecting the day’s featured question, browsing topics or by entering a direct search. The globe zooms to their destination and provides background info. They have the choice to find related maps or info, imagine “what-if…?” or answer the question. Thematic map overlays provide more information and start to build a story around the topic. What-if takes existing data and imagines would could have happened or what will happen by visualizing how one variable can affect other variables, showing correlations and connections. To complete the feedback loop, people can answer their own question publicly or browse through other’s answers to the same question, perhaps reply and engage in healthy discourse.

Fabian Oefner - Dancing Colours

What you see in these images are colour pigments dancing on a speaker. By placing the pigments on a speaker and then playing music through it, the membrane of the speaker starts to vibrate, creating these funny looking figures. To capture the very moment in which the pigments are lifted into the air, a microphone was attached to the flash system. Every time the microphone picks up a sound, it triggers the flashes.
