It started as a video. Then it was a Flash interactive. Now I’ve ported the good ‘ol prokaryote to HTML5/Canvas using Processing.js, which is rad. While I’m glad that this latest version is theoretically accessible on any modern device/browser, authoring this stuff is waaaaay more time consuming than doing it in Flash. Or maybe I’m [...]
I recently did an experimental educational animation on everyone’s favorite group of microbes: prokaryotes. That was a proof of concept video–I hoped to some day make interactive. Here’s progress toward that end. It’s not what you would call “rich” interaction, but hey, it’s getting there. It’s also still done in Flash…is there an intuitive way [...]

We’ve been drooling over Gapminder lately, so we decided to have a go. Peter and Jim analyzed the data and wrangled them into the charts. [...]

I wanted to share this one with everybody, it’s my final project for my New Media Storytelling class at the Media Lab. This is a Twitter visualizer built using Quartz Composer that takes multiple users and plots [...]

Try dragging the mouse around to better direct the madness. You can clear everything by pressing any key.
