Code Of Red by Ambika Yadav
Code of Red is an interactive visualization that examines the impact of war on artistic creation over the last century. Specifically, it enables the audience to explore the ways in which wartime affects artists. Does war always oppress or can it have the opposite effect, provoking an outpouring of thoughts and ideas into the world?
This visualization is intended to evoke questions about why artistic creation may be important in the context of war, how it may be serving as a coping mechanism or as a tool to elicit new perspectives— ones which may help present and future generations reflect on the power of their actions to bring about good instead of ill.
