Similar Diversity

Holy Scriptures text map

Similar Diversity is an information graphic which opens up a new perspective at the topics religion and faith by visualizing the Holy Books of five world religions. Communalities and differences of Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Judaism are shown up in this datavisualization.
The visual’s basis is an objective text analysis of the Holy Scriptures, and works without any interpretations from the creators’ side. Despite – or even because of this abstraction, the artworks are not only working on an informal but also on an emotional level. The viewers should be inspired to think about own prejudices and current religious conflicts.

Realised with Processing and VVVV.

Similar Diversity was exhibited at the Hangar-7, Salzburg: Is it possible to touch someone’s heart with design? by Multimediaart and Stefan Sagmeister.
