This assignment is to fulfill the Character Word Cloud task found in the DS106 design assignment bank. It is worth 2 stars.
A word cloud is “an image composed of words used in a particular text or subject, in which the size of each word indicates its frequency or importance.”
The chosen theme for this assignment is the depiction of the World Trade Center in New York City. The texts are transposed into a column shape, indicating the high-rise and perpendicular aspects of the twin towers. In this image, “Tower,” “Manhattan,” and “New York” appear to be larger, indicating the significance of the desired effect. Altogether, the collection of words chosen for this assignment are ones used to describe the actual structure of the building itself, and not of the tragedy or aftermath that occurred during the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001.
