Pointless but Interesting: Art Rendered in Qlikview

Some of you no doubt will have recently seen the ‘Visual Effects in Qlikview’ blog post created by Barry over at QlikFix.com (http://www.qlikfix.com/2012/07/23/visual-fx-in-qlikview/) where Qlikview was put to largely pointless but fantastic use. This got me thinking and I remembered a post from earlier in the year about someone rendering famous paintings in Tableau…and as with these things; most of what Tableau can do Qlikview can do as well. So below are my versions created in Qlikview Scatter Charts using the same data set that was used in the Tableau post (http://www.clearlyandsimply.com/clearly_and_simply/2012/02/6-famous-paintings-in-tableau.html). There are 900,000 datapoints in all.

There’s no wine & cheese gallery opening event so feel free to browse around at your leisure using the .qvw below.



Pointless but interesting.

As usual you can download the .qvw here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0BxloTMUod74tUDBQbGttelNjR0U

Hope you enjoy.

All the best,

    Very cool! Had a quick look to see if these could maybe be animated too, but at 100K+ data points per painting that is a little too much for QlikView 🙂

    Nice work ! It remembered the old times when graphics where created using dot matrix printer and ASCII characters. http://www.atarimagazines.com/v6n3/asciiart.html
