This image is a continuation of a somewhat obsession with visualization of social interactions. In this case; brutal free markets in action in the form of the Japanese stock market.
I included in the screen shots images from the we-make-money-not-art web site because they too are using weighted lists and different visualization methods to compress three dimensional concepts effectively into small spaces.
I was also linked today this "animusic" site which uses computers to animate music with creative elements like pogo sticks playing instruments. Somehow it almost works.
