Natural Language Processing of facebook messages; and their inclusion into an abstract painting

03/23/2019

Synopsis_

 

In this work the author attempted to hybridize aspects of contemporary digital communication such as Facebook text messages, personal data derived from social media use, text analysis and visualization using computer algorithms, and traditional abstract painting. As result the author conceived and created an abstract painting (acrylic on cardboard) having regular mail envelopes containing excerpts from incoming and ongoing Facebook messages. These messages were the result of communication exchanges between the author and 200 Facebook friends over a 2+ years period (January-1-2017 to March-17-2019). The work aims to be interactive in nature as visitors to the exhibit can interact with the painting by opening the envelops and reading the message excerpts. This work explores the possibilities of physical abstract painting as carrier of personal digital data to give visitors an insight into the social media activities from the author who created the painting.

 

 

Creation of abstract painting with regular mail envelops_

 

An acrylic on cardboard painting (of dimensions: 118 x 93 cm) having regular mail envelopes in it was created during March of 2019 (Figure 1). The visual content of the painting followed the artist's abstract style and was not directly related to data derived from text analysis of Facebook messages. The visual composition of the painting stand by its own and at the same time offer a visual trigger to viewers for them to realize the paintings contain regular mail envelops in them. These envelops are the 'interactive agents' that bridge physical and digital worlds as they contain not regular letters but excerpts derived from the digital exchange the author held with Facebook friends.

 

The painting have 20 mail envelops in it and thus provided the author with the opportunity to share with the audience 20 different conversational topics that took place via Facebook text messaging.

Natural Language Processing of Facebook's text messages_

 

In order for the author to curate/select interesting conversational topics he has held with friends in Facebook over a two-year-period, he recurred to text analysis using Natural Language Processing algorithms written in Python. For this, the author manually created two text corpuses: one containing all outgoing Facebook's text messages from the author to his friends; an another containing all incoming Facebook's text messages from friends to the author (Figure 2). The text files contained messages written in English and Spanish. References to weblinks, email addresses, or phone numbers were removed from the corpus of text messages and thus any posterior analysis.

 

 

Figure 2. Sketch depicting the overall approach to curate interesting texts from Facebook messages exchange between the author and his friends on the social media platform. Two corpus texts were created: one containing outgoing messages from the author to 200 friends; whereas the other corpus contained incoming messages from 200 friends to the author. Both corpus were compared and analyzed using Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Complex Network Analysis (CNA) in Python. The insight derived from this approach guided the curation/selection of interesting text excerpts to place inside each mail envelope associated with the painting shown on Figure 1.

 

 

The Python's library Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) was used to perform text-data-mining on the created text corpuses and to extract interesting insights on the topics written and discussed between the author and his friends. These insights then were considered as the 'conversational topics' to be included in printed format to be placed inside the mail envelops on the painting.

 

The corpus assembled from outgoing Facebook messages from the author to friends was 1.42 times larger than the corpus text assembled from incoming messages. Despite this fact, the lexical richness of incoming text messages from friends to author was higher than outgoing text messages from author to friends. Lexical richness is a measure of unique words used/written relative to the total size of the corpus text.

 

Text lengths:

(OuTe Corpus) Outgoing texts: 47,516 vocabulary items (tokens)

(InTe Corpus) Incoming texts: 33,390 vocabulary items (tokens)

 

Lexical Richness:

OuTe: 0.20 (each world is repeated 5 times on average)

InTe: 0.26 (each word is repeated 4 times on average)

 

When identifying the top 100 most commonly used words in each corpus text, their cumulative frequency graphs showed that they constituted 42.5% of the outgoing text corpus, and 39.9% of the incoming text corpus, respectively (Figure 3).  

 

Figure 3a. Cumulative frequency graph for top 100 commonly used words from corpus text containing outgoing facebook messages from the author to his friends. 

 

Figure 3b. Cumulative frequency graph for top 100 commonly used words from corpus text containing incoming facebook messages from friends to the author.

 

 

Although most of the frequently used words shown on figure 3 are words related to the inner workings of English and Spanish language (personal pronouns and articles for example), the author found 'work' and 'tango' interesting words to analyze because they were shared among the two corpus texts. It is interesting to note that whereas the author frequently mentioned words such as 'art', 'video', and 'media', these words were not frequently mentioned in incoming Facebook texts from friends.   

 

Top_100_words:

 

OutTe Corpus: > 'work' (102 occurrences), 'tango' (187 occurrences), 'art' (92 occurrences), 'video' (71 occurrences), and 'media' (61 occurrences)

 

InTe Corpus: includes > 'work' (53 occurrences) and 'tango' (52 occurrences)

 

Since there are 20 mail envelopes for each of both paintings (shown on Figure 1), the author needed to find 20 interesting words in total that were shared among the two text corpuses. Because 'work' and 'tango' were initially found within the top 100 most frequently mentioned words, an additional 18 words of interest shared among the incoming and outgoing text corpuses needed to be found. For this reason, the author focused his attention to (1) words that were longer than 7 characters and had been mentioned more than 7 times; (2) collocation of words; and (3) words ending with 'ing'.   

 

(OuTe) Words from OUTGOING Facebook Messages written BY AUTHOR to friends:

The author was interested in analyzing the use of verbs or words ending with 'ing' and how their frequency may change in outgoing versus incoming Facebook messages:

 

Words in OuTe which ends with 'ing' and were mentioned more than 7 times:

 

['DJing', 'asking', 'being', 'bring', 'building', 'coming', 'dancing', 'doing', 'during', 'following', 'going', 'interesting', 'learning', 'leaving', 'letting', 'living', 'looking', 'morning', 'playing', 'resulting', 'sending', 'shooting', 'something', 'taking', 'talking', 'thing', 'thinking', 'trying', 'upcoming', 'using', 'working', 'writing']

['being', 'dancing', 'doing', 'everything', 'getting', 'going', 'interesting', 'learning', 'looking', 'meeting', 'recording', 'something', 'talking', 'thinking', 'working']

 

Shared words between OuTe & InTe ending with '-ing':

 

being - dancing - doing - going - interesting - learning - looking - something - talking - thinking - working

 

 

Examination of shared-words contexts between incoming and outgoing Facebook messages_

 

A concordance view shows every occurrence of a given word and its context. This allows for comparing the context in which words that are shared between incoming and outgoing Facebook messages were written. Based on the text analysis previously shown, the author has identified 20 words that were shared between incoming and outgoing Facebook messages that are an interesting case for a concordance. These words and their contexts will be printed and included in the painting shown on Figure 1 by placing them inside the envelopes (20 envelopes - 20 shared words - 20 concordances) (Figure 4). Based on the above, the selected words are:

 

work - tango - alternative - electronic - festival - performance - proyecto - Hong Kong - machine learning - being - dancing - doing - going - interesting - learning - looking - something - talking - thinking - working

The above text fragments show that a concordance on the word 'work' really provided many other words occurring just before and after the occurrence of 'work', providing a valuable context in which the word was used across many instances in the corpus texts, facilitating the interpretation in its differences in use among outgoing and incoming Facebook text messages. What other words appear in the text corpuses with similar range of contexts to 'work'? 

 

Words in OutTe with similar range of contexts to 'work':

 

you - milonga - put - this - do - make - wife - tango - dj - email - idea - message - i

daughter - time - be - website - get - way - phd

 

Words in InTe with similar range of contexts to 'work':

 

time - works - do - am - post - you - nyc - leave - life - is - it - said - we - be - other - u - recorded - person - like - growth

 

 

Let's now take the word 'time' and conduct a concordance for outgoing Facebook text messages as test case to identify indeed that they share a similar range of contexts with 'work' in its respective text corpus:

When extending this procedure to all of the 20 words selected that were shared among outgoing and incoming Facebook text messages, the author could identify a group of words that shared a similar range of contexts based on concordance (Figure 5). Interestingly these words were not always shared between outgoing and incoming text messages, which prompted the author to study their relationship to the 20 selected words by conducting Complex Network Analysis (CNA). 

 

Figure 5. Differences between OuTe (outgoing Facebook text messages) and InTe (incoming Facebook text messages) in the number of words that shard a similar range of contexts (based on concordance) to the 20 selected words (shown on the Y-axis).

 

 

Complex Network Analysis of words with similar range of contexts_  

 

Based on data shown in Figure 5, the author proceeded to explore the quantitative relationships in networks created by connecting each of the 20 selected words to their corresponding words that shared a similar range of contexts on the concordance analysis. The author manually created two CSV (comma-separated values) files, one for OuTe and InTe respectively. These files contained the data shown on Figure 5, and they were analyzed and visualized using the Python's library NetworkX (Figure 6).

 

Figure 6a. Image depicting the layout network of OuTe data shown on Figure 5, which was created with NetworkX and visualized with pygraphviz module (Graphviz).  

 

Figure 6b. Image depicting the layout network of InTe data shown on Figure 5, which was created with NetworkX and visualized with pygraphviz module (Graphviz).  

 

From the images shown on Figure 6 it can be seen that the topology of the networks are different between OuTe and InTe, revealing (in visual format) differences in the use of words between the author and his 200 Facebook friends. For instance, the use of the words 'work' and 'working' in OuTe and InTe displayed quite different relationships with words that shared a similar range of contexts. 

 

Because of the less-than-ideal visual layout of NetworkX and Graphviz, the author imported the networks created in NetworkX to Gephi, which can produce publication-quality networks layout. Furthermore, Gephi provides a set of tools to customize the network layout visualization according to 'degrees' (the number of immediate neighbors - adjacent nodes), and 'community structure' (coloring of nodes based on how they form tight groups called communities). The resulting networks layout are shown on Figure 7.

 

Figure 7a. Image depicting the layout network of OuTe data shown on Figure 5 and Figure 6, which was created with NetworkX and visualized with Gephi. The size of nodes is proportional to their 'degree' (number of adjacent nodes). Nodes were colored according to their 'community structure'. Nodes share the same color if they belong to the same group/community. 

 

 

Figure 7b. Image depicting the layout network of InTe data shown on Figure 5 and Figure 6, which was created with NetworkX and visualized with Gephi. The size of nodes is proportional to their 'degree' (number of adjacent nodes). Nodes were colored according to their 'community structure'. Nodes share the same color if they belong to the same group/community. Coloring of nodes from figure 7a does not relate to figure 7b.

 

 

From the new network visualizations created in Gephi, differences in network topology between OuTe and InTe are even more evident; which the author finds very interesting. Differences in node size between figure 7a and figure 7b are evident, specially for the words 'something', 'learning', and 'alternative'. Community structures are also different between OuTe and InTe. For instance, the words shown on figure 5 'interesting' and 'going' form a community in figure 7a but 'interesting' forms a community with not only 'going' but with 'dancing' as well. 

 

 

Discussion_

 

In this work the coalescence of two very different processes, that is plastic and algorithmic thinking, converged into a physical abstract painting. The painting being the physical agent conveying a digital message. This message reveals personal information from the author who created the painting, by given viewers the opportunity to read the author's digital exchange with 200 Facebook friends over a 2+ year period. Curation of written excerpts from this digital exchange was facilitated and guided by the utilization of algorithms inherent to the fields of Natural Language Processing and Complex Network Analysis that were implemented by the author for this project. Thus, a plastic idea (the painting with envelops) was enhanced with an algorithmic one (text analysis and visualization).
