Wordle your way to some pretty cool art. In about a second. I was turned on to this web tool as an assignment this semester, strangely enough. The basic idea is that you make a collage with words, and then personalize it using options like font, color, spacing, and language. The result is pretty fun. For example, I pasted in the text of 1 Corinthians 13 — the Love chapter (for Valentine’s Day, of course). You can also do it using an RSS feed or del.icio.us links. So, say, you want to sum up someone’s blog in a visually interesting way, just Wordle it away!
P.S. — The NY Times has been using Wordle to create images in their ‘Visualization Lab.’ One that I found pretty interesting is Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address. Take a look around!
