We have Miriah Meyer (Assistant Professor at Univ. of Utah) and Nina McCurdy (PhD student at Univ. of Utah) on Data Stories for a project episode about the lovely Poemage, “a visualization system for exploring the sonic topology of a poem.”
Miriah and Nina worked hand-in-hand with a group of poets to design a tool that visualizes a poem and, as such, provides inspiration for interesting poetic structures and solutions.
On the show we talk about how they derived phonological information from text, how the project evolved, and how data visualization tools can be designed to support creativity.
Listen here or read the transcript. Either way, enjoy the show!
