The process began with converting the essays (English) text into a usable dataset. This was achieved through utilising the ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) table, an encoding standard for electronic communication, to generate a very long number string.
This number string was then converted into a dataset of x,y,z co-ordinates, made up of almost 49 000 rows.
This dataset was then used to generate a point cloud and render out a 3 dimensional computation of the concept. The linear stream of text becomes a counter-informative reservoir of information, jamming historical happenings and abstracting consciousness.
