I love when I come upon this type of visual inquiry! Hats off to Mr. Pandurangan!
Software engineer Vijay Pandurangan analyzed 35,000 posters from 1914 to present day and came up with the visual representation pictured above.
His theory was that over the years our color bias, at least where movie posters are concerned, has gone more dark and blue.
If you’re interested in seeing the full results, including an interactive version, head over to his blog for a more in-depth look at the experiment.
Art comes along and you enjoy it, hopefully it makes your brain and heart twill around a bit before you move on. Every once in a while art comes along, slaps you across the face and makes you stand up and pay attention, maybe even moan.
Best of all, it has a bonus track! Artist Jason de Caires Taylor creates life-size cement sculptures of people and submerges them into the waters of South America. As time passes the sculptures become part of the underwater marine-scape and become artificial reefs that the marine life desperately need. Well... I don't how desperately the marine life need the sculptures but they still take your breath away. Can you imagine that scuba dive?
