Custom software was created to analyze Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu's "Early Summer" (1951). The five longest scenes in the film were identified, and used as raw materials for this abstract data visualization. Rather than conveying some statistical information in a utilitarian manner, this visualization presents an ambiguous and poetic view into history. The film's characters are not visible as static entities; rather, they appear as processes: verbs, not nouns.
