My data includes a large list of films (still a work in progress) that include dialogue mentioning the name “Jesus”. This can be in any form or sentence like “Jesus Christ, he’s gotta gun!”. I’ve got a list of about 200 films so far that I’ve organized by genre, year released, the exact time that the line of dialog was delivered, with a small video clip (1-3 seconds) for each line from each movie. I am hoping to have over at least 500 entries for my project. I found it challenging to choose a graph type on flourish. There are not too many options that include media, so I had to take my data in a different direction. I do not think the graph that I chose is the best way to display my data. This graph does not have enough space, and a bunch of the circles cover each other making it hard to see all of the films. I had to make my data more focused by distinguishing the quotes between “Jesus” and “Jesus Christ”. I still am unsure of the best platform for my data, but flourish definitely helped me learn what won’t work.


Lab 6

Well, I tried to figure out what I did wrong with the visual that I made from class this past week, but I could not do it. I had to fall back on something last minute since I was not sure where to pull new data from last minute like this. I decided to chart the wins off all the SEC West football teams wins over the past 5 years and divide them up by teams. Of course Alabama is predominantly on top (roll tide), but there was some fluctuation between between LSU, A&M, Auburn, and Ole Miss. Referring to the assignment in class, it is far more complicated than the graph that I have at the bottom since there was so much more data. I did learn a lot using Flourish and how it will relate to Omeka for my final project. My final project will likely be a some sort of bar graph representation, so I am glad to have worked with it when it for this small representation.
