XIII.2 Histography

Matan Stauber

Histography is an award-winning interactive timeline. The site draws historical events from Wikipedia, and updates itself daily as new events are added to the online encyclopedia. Matan Stauber, currently an interactive designer and code developer in Tel Aviv, created Histography as a final project at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Using bars at the bottom and left of the screen, you can filter events by time and by category. Or touch the green box in the top left corner of the screen to view an edited collection of stories. The pink square in the top right will then take you back to the main screen. Visit Histography online at http://histography.io.
