Geographic news coverage visualized

March 9, 2012  |  Data Art

Kitchen Budapest explores local news coverage in Hungary with sound and a bubbling map.

Ebullition visualises and sonificates data pulled from one of the biggest news sites of Hungary, origo.hu. In the 30 fps animation, each frame represents a single day, each second covers a month, starting from December 1998 until October 2010.

Whenever a Hungarian city or village is mentioned in any domestic news on origo.hu website, it is translated into a force that dynamically distorts the map of Hungary. The sound follows the visual outcome, creating a generative ever changing drone.

Next step: show the news causing those bubbles.
