Martin Wattenberg and Jonathan Feinberg created Color Code, an astonishing interactive map of 33,000 English nouns:

A picture of 33,000 English nouns, grouped by meaning. Each word is given the average color of web images found when searching for that term.

Color Code is a full-color portrait of the English language.
The artwork is an interactive map of more than 33,000 words. Each word has been assigned a color based on the average color of images found by a search engine. The words are then grouped by meaning. The resulting patterns form an atlas of our lexicon.
