Recently I have been looking into new and interesting ways of visualising data. I stumbled across an excellent suite of open source tools called nodebox (http://nodebox.net) so decided to have a play.
I have experimenting with nodebox v3 for a couple of days and found it really quick and intuitive to make some nice generative animations. You can watch them at: https://www.instagram.com/mrlukesanger/
Wha initially interested me in nodebox is the fact it can accept CSV files. So the next step is to load up some datasets and seeing what kind of data visualisations are possible.
