Interactive Prototype for Artists Lifes Project
The main idea of the project is to popularize History of Arts by revealing new interesting facts in painters biographies. Which works were created in the same year, how old artists were when created the most famous works, how long and how productive were their creative paths, how artists influenced each other, what had been their last paintings before they had gone? The infographic gives answers to those questions and encourages viewers to know more about painters destinies.
At the present time, the prototype is created in the Processing (Java-based programming language for informational designers) and works as a desktop application. Data is taken from Wikidata. Now I am working on developing the project further. I am planning to turn it into a website, add search filters, enrich the content as well as expand time frames.
