It’s even tougher to translate that data into tangible value. But it’s not impossible, and many organizations, in both the private and public sectors, are learning how.

Andreas Maniatis's insight:
Creative coders turned their sights from media art to journalism. They’re writing software about ideas that have eluded traditional news organizations, either because they were too complex to explain in prose or they were trapped in a spreadsheet/academic paper.

The table was created as a graduation project at the Musashino Art University and shows little pieces of animation and how they correlate with each other. As you click on an “element”, you get some further information about it (sometimes even a short explanation of how to recreate the effect in Aftereffects) and see a little experiment of what comes forth when you blend the animation with another one into something entirely new. Beautiful!
