Rosetta Archive, 2011-2012 أرشيف روزيتا Series
This series of network visualizations were each made with a data set of 500,000 tweets collected on the hashtag #Syria over the month of July 2011. The colors represent language, and the nodes represent approximately 60,000 users. This immersive experience offers a new perspective on the microcosms within macrocosms of this world, somewhat unfinished, and unknowable. Rosetta Archive visualizes complex representations of movements of billions of people with many leaders together in a way that allows one to experience through the senses what cannot be processed cognitively or rationally. It represents the immense and unwieldy social media activity, in this case, from 2011 to 2012.
