Mapping Girl Talk
(2013)

This is a data-to-narrative project. The goal is to mapping a remix song from Girl Talk. I feel the remix culture is actually like the most popular food in the U.S. which is pizza: Both of them are mashing up something you like into one piece. After analyzing the data of the remix song, so I decided to map each piece of song to the pizza toppings, according to thier ranking: The song with highest potision on the Billboard is represented by the pizza topping with highest ranking, and so on. Then I made a pizza!

The pizza

Then I cut the pizza and calculate the calories of each piece.

For example from 72 second to 96 second, you got 330 calories.
