Brave New World, written in 1951, is a piece of speculative fiction that is set in the future. In this hypothetical World State, people are genetically designed via scientific engineering and psychological conditioning to become passive and thus useful to the ruling class. This data visualization highlights in great detail the patterns in the use of literary devices and references as well as the dynamics and complexities of character relationships. It is also an exploration of words as a unit of time. It is intended to be experienced as an accompaniment to Huxley’s novel.
