This is a cool way to play around with artwork based on data. I could see this as a creativity tool to generate new ideas that could then be expanded in more traditional ways. — Douglas
Morph, by Datavized in collaboration with the Google News Initiative, is a tool to generate abstract images from data:
Morph exists to engage users in the creative expression of data without having to code. Generative art based algorithms turn data into a visual representation and the user can affect how their data interacts with the final visual via the algorithm. The algorithms themselves are not fixed; the user can randomly mutate, evolve and generate new algorithms creating new visuals, encouraging the sense of creative exploration and discovery.
