We were interested in visualizing a complex data set of productions, characters, actors in a non-linear time based format. We wanted to create an engaging interface that would allow you to view who’s played iconic Shakespearean characters like Beatrice (Much Ado…), Lear, or Hamlet and also see key actors who have starred in multiple productions.
We were also curious about the plays. What were some of the more popular plays? Which genres dominate?
After 12 (!) design layout variations, hours of data collection and creative coding, we present an interactive homage to this great summertime institution. Any feedback? Please email us.
