The computational aesthetics of love & hate


A_B_PEACE & TERROR ETC. THE COMPUTATIONAL AESTHETICS OF LOVE & HATE blends world politics with the aesthetics of computational data to create a powerful, pertinent, and spellbinding view of the modern world. As an intriguing collection of data, A_B_… reveals the quantitative contribution each of the 192 member states of the United Nations has made toward peace and terror in the world. It is a functional information-design piece that uses computational aesthetic principles to compare complex and socially relevant data derived from researchers working in the field of geopolitics. The dual-sided overlay of the two graphs allows for a direct visual comparison of the peace and terror measures. The functional nature of the poster becomes poignantly relevant when one makes detailed comparisons among nations. Many of the results are quite surprising and stand in contrast to prevailing norms of collective national perception.
