Zoetrope in Business Week

bw_200x42Business Week discusses data visualization, including UW CSE’s Zoetrope, created by graduate students Eytan Adar (now on the faculty at the University of Michigan) and Mira Dontcheva (now a researcher at Adobe) and faculty members James Fogarty and Dan Weld.

“Today algorithmically inspired artists are re-imagining the art-science continuum through work that frames the left-brain analysis of data in a right-brain creative story.  Some use data visualization as a bridge between alienating information and its emotional impact … Others take a more technological angle and focus on cultural utility — the Zoetrope project offers a temporal and historical visualization of the ephemeral Web.”
