If you are easily amused by things like flags and pie charts, then this digital media art project will doubly amuse you.
Designer Shahee Ilyas did… um… this:
"Using a list of countries generated by The World Factbook database, flags of countries fetched from Wikipedia are analysed by a custom made python script to calculate the proportions of colours on each of them. That is then translated on to a piechart using another python script."
I'm not entirely sure what a "python script" is, or why this poor woman can't spell the word "color," but the end result is quite stunning: An aesthetically intriguing grid of pie charts representing "Flags By Colours."
It's the kind of project Einstein might have undertaken had he wanted his talents to go to waste.
Not sure which flag is ours? Lucky for you, I added a box with an arrow and the words "UNITED STATES" pointing to the pie chart that represents the U.S. flag — thus blocking the less noteworthy pie charts of Vanuatu, Venezuela, Vietnam and Wallis & Futuna.
Seriously, suck it, Vanuatu. I'm a New Caledonia guy myself.
