Websites as Graphs

A bit of fun!

Here is a java applet that traverses the html of a webpage and turns it into a stunning visual graphic.  A more detailed on-line explanation and examples found here.

Website graphs are the work of Marcel Salathe, a young conceptual artist living in Zurich, Switzerland
