Descriptive prose can often resemble an intricate fractal in terms of its structure...right? Cory Clarke's experimental application, "l[inguistic] system" attempts to utilize the ever-growing amount of online texts. The site asks users to type in URLs or to cut-and-paste the text of a story; the program then visualizes the branching structure of the prose by interpreting patterns in punctuation and syntax. The result is a pretty image that proves that a picture just may be worth a thousand words.
