To mark + celebrate fifth anniversary of the fantastic infosthetics.com, Moritz Stefaner created this beautiful visualization of articles posted on the site using his “Elastic Lists” flash application.
How it works: The little tiles on the left represent the individual posts, with color stripes representing their categories. You can find a color legend in the category filter on the right. In addition, you will find filters for the number of comments, year and author. Clicking one of the filter entries will display only matching posts, and also update the number of items for each filter accordingly. If you click a post, you can see its details on the bottom, and visit it by clicking the preview. In addition, the filter values that belong to this post are marked with a grey background.
If you have not been reading infosthetics.com over the years it’s not too late to start. I remember first visiting it probably 5 years ago, seeing a wonderful collection of projects come together under great editorial of Andrew Vande Moere. Infosthetics now includes around 1950 different projects and guaranteed hours of visual stimuli for first time visitors. Here is to another 20 years!
Happy Birthday infosthetics.com!
