The idea with this project is to get some kind of abstract pie chart. The data this will represent is really basic, let's say it is 3 components from the same thing. For instance "programming" is 50% writing code, 30% bug hunting and 20% writing tests.

One problem with representing this data on a classical pie chart is that it would not visually represent the complexity behind these numbers. Most of the "writing code" is related to "bugs hunting", tests cover written code and so on. The resulting abstract pie chart will have a related but different message/purpose than the original numbers. It should give a sense of the main proportions but more importantly it will highlight that each parts interact with each others to form the main element.

On the final product I will maybe use javascript to animate it. The data is constantly evolving so that would be a nice way to represent this.
