Titles and Topics: Ephemera at the Smithsonian

In collaboration with the Smithsonian, this viz seeks to highlight the various topics annotated within the Smithsonian's activist and ephemera archives. The title of each artifact is distributed to the left of the chord chart, while the topics that they are tagged with are shown to the right. In this way, we can navigate the chord graph by hovering over a topic such as 'black power' and see simultaneously the various artifacts that fall within that particular topic. Conversely, we can do the same by hovering over a single title on the left and understand what topics the Smithsonian has categorized under that artifact.
