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.
