  • Word News (Benjamin Fischer, 2005)

  • The size of each word is proportional to the number of times it's mentioned in current news stories.

  • Wordnews focuses on systematics for the interpretation and visual display of textual information. As a first example the current news headlines of several leading international news sources are being analysed and displayed. The output tries to visualise meaning according to calculations on the quantitative occurrence of words. Like a seismograph the application registers amplitudes and eruptions in current world-news headlines.

  • The Libraryof BabelJorge Luis Borges (1941) Babel Spiral

  • The Library of Babel Borges (1941)Those who judge it to be limited postulate that in remote places the corridors and stairways and hexagons can conceivably come to an end -- which is absurd. Those who imagine it to be without limit forget that the possible number of books does have such a limit. I venture to suggest this solution to the ancient problem: The Library is unlimited and cyclical.
