A visual system was created to differentiate The Stranger from other literary work, highlighting the short sentences and frequent pauses of the writing that create an atmosphere of detachment, indifference and resignedness. Each white pixel represent a pause with a sentence fragment in between. Associated with the impact they have on readers, shorter fragments are darker and longer fragments are lighter in color.
