    1. 1. Case 1 (iv)Narrative Pattrens in the Shahnameh<br />MDST 3559: DataestheticsProf. Alvarado03/31/2011<br />
    2. 2. Business<br />Comments working?<br />
    3. 3. Review<br />Method<br />“Distant Reading”<br />Cultural Analytics is like archaeology<br />Image Graphs<br />Use of X and Y space to show dimensions<br />E.g. Narrative Time vs. Manuscript Tradition<br />See V5<br />Code Review: Using arrays to transform data structures<br />Visualization Review<br />
    4. 4. Method 2: Use the Array Pattern<br />Create a new array to store the results of your “data loop”<br />The foreach() loop where you grab rows and columns<br />Second array will mirror the X / Y structure of the visualization we want<br />Remember that arrays are like this:<br /> $array[X][Y][Z];<br />More complicated at first, but more effective and elegant<br />Gives you greater control<br />See v3.ph, etc.<br />
    5. 5. Visualization Review<br />See V4 and V5<br />http://studio1.shanti.virginia.edu/~rca2t/dataesthetics/03-29/v4.php<br />http://studio1.shanti.virginia.edu/~rca2t/dataesthetics/03-29/v5.php<br />
    6. 6. What is added by V5?<br />Some MSs emphasize certain sequences<br />Contrast with the first viz, which showed which episodes are emphasized<br />Examples<br />EP 390—416 (PECK)<br />EP 832—901 (PECK)<br />EP 101—116 (58G)<br />
    7. 7. Overview<br />Begin where we left off<br />RUSTAM : KAY KAUS :: IMAGE : TEXT?<br />Review story behind the “hot spot” from our visualization<br />Read the story for patterns <br />Explore techniques for visualizing narrative patterns<br />
    8. 8.
    9. 9. Actually, Rustam Big in Text Too<br />RUSTAM = 121<br />KAY KHUSRAW = 80<br />KHUSRAW PARWIZ = 57<br />See ManyEyes viz<br />http://www-958.ibm.com/me/visualizations/word-cloud-of-episode-titles-from--2/comments/a7729b405b9a11e0a916000255111976<br />
    10. 10. Interesting that the central figure in a Book of Kings is not a King<br />Let’s drill down into the text to find out more<br />
    11. 11. The March into Mazinderan<br />http://studio1.shanti.virginia.edu/~rca2t/dataesthetics/03-31/shah-march.html<br />
    12. 12. Discuss text as visualization<br />Zooming in from the larger visualization<br />
    13. 13. Who is Rustem?<br />
    14. 14.
    15. 15.
    16. 16. ZAL<br />RUSTAM<br />SHAH<br />
    17. 17. Structure?<br />Rustem = PowerPuff Girls<br />Kai Kaus = Mayor<br />Zal = Father (kind of)<br />King of M = Mojo Jojo<br />White Deev = One of MJ's minions<br />Lions, etc. = Fuzzy Lumpkins?<br />
    18. 18. Structure<br />Frodo = Dorothy<br />Ring = Slippers<br />Sam = Tin Man, etc.<br />Gandalf = Good Witch<br />Sauron = Bad Witch<br />Gollum = Toto -> mediator<br />
    19. 19. Character StructureRustam as Liminal Hero<br />RUSTAM<br />
    20. 20. Structuralist “Prosopography”<br />Recurring patterns and structures imply cultural models<br />Political Organization<br />KING / COUNCILLOR (PRIEST) / WARRIOR<br />Nature of Power<br /> Royal Power is fragile and dependent<br />Now, How to Describe and Represent? <br />
    21. 21. Other Patterns<br />Characteristic events (event types) and sequences<br />E.g. drinking wine<br />Implied social networks<br />Next week, we will look at these patterns and explore tools to visualize them<br />
