Twitter maze

Twitter Maze was originally created for Written Images, «a generative book that presents programmed images by various artists. Each print in process will be calculated individually – which makes every single book unique».


A spiral shaped maze is generated using the top trending topics from Twitter during the last 24 hours. The whole maze is a suite of blocks (one for each topic, 20 topics for each hour), starting from the center (the most recent topics) and spiraling outwards. The height of each block is relative to the frequency of appearance (24 hours wise) of the topic it represents.
