Abstract

While the far-fetched ideas brought up with imagination are shedding lights on Science Fiction Movies, occasionally ever-growing technology has been fuelled by these creative inspirations and imaginations. This article reflects on the findings of the data visualization project Dystopia-Utopia (www.dystopia-utopia.com) and investigates the existence of a common discourse that would stand out in Science Fiction Movies as a significant social modifier. In this approach with the use of a built interactive Circular Hierarchial Edge Bundling Data Visualization system, the data provided by the online participants have been analyzed and the results show that Dystopia theme has been more frequently spoken in the discourse of mainstream Science Fiction Movies.
