TED Talk Word Cloud Animation

I’ve now created an animation of the TED Talks Word Cloud from my previous post. Check out the results above.
It was a different and more fun take on how to visualise the data. Whilst a comprehensive analysis of the data isn’t possible here, it does engage the viewer and give them the sense of exploring the data in a fun an interesting way. Each view will yield different discoveries and very few people will get the same combination and experience of words.

The choosing and timing of the music was important to this piece as well, allowing the piece to build up as the viewer gets closer to discovering what the most popular words are and build the suspense.

My previous foray into data visualisation animation goes to show that telling a story with data and providing insights doesn’t have to begin and stop with static charts and graphs.
