Visualizing Text from Calvino’s Invisible Cities 

I usually imagine synesthetic imageries from words and sentences that describe 5 senses.

So, I wanted to visualize texts. My question was “what if i read texts through visual languages, not written language?”

Also, my final prototype, I made a map based on the cities that are discovered in the novel “Invisibles Cities”

Daily Inspiration about Humanity

1. [TED] Jim Fallon – Exploring the mind of a killer 

He said that his genetic family tree has psychopathic gene, but he announced that the trait can be changed depending on the environment surrounding each person.

2. [EBS] 생명의 사슬, 유전 (A documentary about Genetics.)

I became curious about Genetics after watching Jim Fallon’s TED lecture, so I watched this very impressive documentary about heredity.

3. Alain De Botton – The News: A User’s Manual

I read his book that criticize for the side effect of ‘news’ and watched this video for understanding more about his opinion.
