Algorithmic Reading:
The Old Man And The Sea
Book, Computation
2017
Reading is defined as a complex cognitive process of decoding symbols in order to construct or derive meaning.

The project attempts to destill a narrative to meaningful symbols compiled with computational method, that visualizes the plot to some extent.

All information are gathered from the text using Python, visualized using Processing for “type-setting” in Indesign.

*Footnotes in the book are quotes in the text that correspond to the bracketed line of symbols.
