We Feel Fine, established in 2005, is a large-scale exploration of human emotion displayed on international weblogs. If the system tracks the phrase “I feel” or “I am feeling”, it records the full sentence, and classifies that emotion. Additional age, gender, and geographical location of the author as well as the local weather conditions at the time the sentence was written are collected.
The installation „Making Visible the Invisible“ is a dynamic real-time calculated data visualization at Seattle Central Library. Consisting of six large LCD screens located behind the main information desk, it focuses on the circulation of checked out books and media and connected metadata (e.g. catalog number, bibliography number, date/time stamps, collection code, item type, barcode, title, callNumber, Dewey class, keywords) received each hour. Thus it provides insights in what patrons consider interesting information at any specific time.
