The www.from application traverses and visualizes the interconnected nature of websites it visits. It is a methodical beast that parses the source code of web pages looking for links to other web pages, links within the page itself, email addresses, downloadable files, etc. It creates a star shape with the number of new links found determining the number of spines on the star. Pages that link nowhere new become circles. Email address show as plus-signs. Non-html files are squares.
By following the first new link it finds on a page, it is able to iterate through thousands of pages, drawing a continuous line as it winds its way around the web.
Written long ago in Macromedia Director, the final outputs are large-scale Illustrator files.
