Ah! What the fudge?! While I was working on a different kind of visualization for Lisbon’s traffic, I came up with this glitch. It’s always interesting when programming errors or dubious experiments result in aesthetically pleasing outcomes, but pretty far away from the intended behavior. Meaning: it doesn’t mean anything. Anyway I can tell that the reds represent slow traffic and the greens and blue, average or rapid transit – t h e m o r p h i n g c i t y .
Too bad that my pseudo-scientific consciousness doesn’t allow me to start working on an arty concept that could justify the mere existence of this artifact. It exists, for me, because in the end it’s a big LOL.
