Color Code is a full-color portrait of the English language developed by Martin Wattenberg. Technology Review recently named him "one of the world’s 100 top young innovators."

The artwork is an interactive map of more than 33,000 words. Each word has been assigned a color based on the average color of images found by a search engine. The words are then grouped by meaning. The resulting patterns form an atlas of our lexicon.
