Artwork for Visual Data, the column on “La Lettura”, the cultural supplement of “Corriere Della Sera”.
In collaboration with Institute of computational linguistics “Antonio Zampolli” and ItaliaNLP Lab.
The visualization shows the most frequent terms and their proximity in her books. For each book are indicated the 10 most frequent single terms, the 10 most frequent complex terms and their most frequent neighboring words in the text.
For each book are also indicated the linguistic features: distribution of adjectives, verbs and nouns.
It is also shown a comprehensive analysis of all the books: the most frequent words, their proximity in the text and the average linguistic characteristics.
The words she communicates are so powerful and meaningful: this is why I tried to visualize the analysis keeping the focus on them.
