Zeus’s Affairs

A GOD, HIS LOVERS AND HIS OFFSPRING 

The project is an interactive infographic that shows:
RELATIONSHIPS: Zeus is represented by the wide thick black circles of the scheme. In the inner part of these circles are all his lovers, which are connected with coloured lines to their children. Crossing between circles and lines represent a relationship. The thin circles in the central part of the diagram represent brotherhoods. 
AUTHORS: Every author, who represented a source of information about the relationships, dealt with the subject in a differnt way; in the global diagram it can be seen that not every relationship is mentioned the same numeber of times as the others. The four main colours have been chosen to subdivide the names on the basis of the period in which the authors lived. 
Workshop at Politecnico di Milano, teaching: Santiago Ortiz.
