A scatterplot is a fairly basic form of data visualization. It is, however, incredibly legible and can be very easy on the eyes. In this example, the user is able to change what values are being represented on the X and Y axes, as well as the values being represented by the size of the squares themselves. The user is invited to explore the data, and make their own representation of it.
In the early stages of this sketch, I realized that there was more to my little scatterplot than I had originally thought. The spray of pixel-like squares on the display created a captivating pattern that I wanted to expand upon. Now, the user has the ability to create these abstract scattered designs that have a deeper layer of meaning to those who view it in the context of the data itself.
