Below are three key projects, which I liked from Jan Willem Tulp. They have very strong contextual visual aesthetics and dynamic data interpretation.

The Close Votes – Netherlands 2012

The Parliament Elections in Netherlands – 2012

insights from the above projects are:

  • a strong geographic cluster around a particular area
  • User interaction and engagement
  • Functionality, simplicity and  readability of text

What different sorting algorithms sound like

This particular audibilization is just one of many ways to generate sound from running sorting algorithms. Here on every comparison of two numbers (elements) I play (mixing) sin waves with frequencies modulated by values of these numbers. There are quite a few parameters that may drastically change resulting sound – I just chose parameteres that imo felt best.
