Geniuses visualized

Geniuses visualized

The visualisation explores the one hundred geniuses of language identified in the book "Genius" by Harold Bloom.
The composition of the individuals mirrors the structure of the chapters in the book, using the form of the Kabbalah Sephirot.
Each individual is displayed by name, historical period of activity, main profession, continent of origin, number of pages dedicated in the book, visits to the relative pages on wikipedia.org, and relationships with other historical figures.
