Quantifying the development of user-generated art during 2001–2010

Fig 1

A comparison between 5,000 random samples of artworks shared in 2004 and in 2010 in Digital Art and Traditional Art categories.

The images are sorted by hue, with black and white images appearing on top. This explorative visualization suggests that the visual changes in Traditional Art between 2004 and 2010 are larger than the the changes in Digital Art for the same time period. We show in the text how to quantify such changes.
