Flower project started as a discussion with my then manager at
Eli Lilly India, Anand Sawkar. We were discussing Data
visualization and were wondering if there was a way to know if
anybody in our office is a
superhero movie enthusiast ;)
. And then we started wondering if we can have a playful Data
viz to know if folks at Lilly, share common intersets.
Would it strike up conversations? Find folks to play football over the weekends? Or perhaps, watch superhero movies?
In a nutshell, this project imagines people as a flower, with each attribute as a part of the flower. It gives a glipse of the person through their expertise, experience, hobbies and activities, and how similar/dissimilar one is from the rest.
