A visualization of the individual quantitative elements of nine Books: The Picture of Dorian Gray, Robinson Crusoe, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Iliad, A Portrait of the Artists as a Young Man, Frankenstein, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Each book is represented by one arrangement of concentric circles. The english texts (in original or translation) are analyzed by letter occurrences and compared with letter averages of the english language. Amongst other quantitative values, this aberration is used as an input for diameter and color of the concentric circles. Those arrangements were alligned in a 3 x 3 grid and then printed and framed.

Generative visualization done in Processing. 80cm x 80cm sealed digital print on forex board with black aluminum frame. Independent Work.
