Visual Complexity

The development of new projects on the Web is breathtaking. Today, I found a wonderful website called "Visual Complexity". intends to be a unified resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project's main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web. I truly hope this space can inspire, motivate and enlighten any person doing research on this field.

Many of the currently more than 400 images that can be found on this website are of breathtaking beauty. They are taken from different fields such as Biology, Arts, Cybernetics, Social Networks, etc. This is a great opportunity to explore complexity in a non-intellectual, right brain, analogue way. We want more!
