Poempictures

Poempictures (Versképek) is the title of my text visualization project. I have used Processing to create a program which can create images out of text. A system which can create triangles for each letter based on their local value in the alphabet. Therefore every word can be illustrated by these triangles, where the colours show the vowel quality of the word.

I created 3 posters for 3 different 20th century Hungarian poems based on the above mentioned system.
The explanation of the colours is part of the posters, although every poem has a different colour system based on my own personal choice.

This short video shows you how does the program work, how does it generate images from words.
