Visualization: Bible Edition

Posted by Bushel Basket in ,

Chris Harrison, a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon University, has developed some very interesting data-crunching visualizations of the Bible. His images focus on cross referencing, social networks, and a distribution of names and places in the Bible.

This image was named one of the best science images of 2008 by the National Geographic News. His images are too intricate to experience via thumbnails, so please check out his work on his site.

Visualizing the Bible

For all you pastors, linguists and atheists out there, maybe these depictions will give you a different way to approach the text. But, the images are at least cool to look at.

If you are looking to kill a few minutes, I encourage you to take a look around the rest of the site. He's also a crafty, DIY kind of guy. His stuff is very interesting, and pushes art into the logic and world view of science.
