Chart used as drink label

For Swee Kombucha, Bedow used a stacked chart as a food label to show the ingredient breakdowns for various beverages. The greater the area is, the more ingredient by volume there is in the drink. This project takes me back. See also nutritional facts redesigned, alcoholic beverage pie charts, the engineer’s guide to drinks, and coffee drink breakdowns. The two-year span from 2010 to 2011 was quite the renaissance period...

Global warming bike path

The @LpzfuersKlima team have completed painting a giant representation of the Warming Stripes on the Sachsenbrücke in Leipzig, thanks to crowd funding.

Valentina D’Efilippo, Arpad Ray, and Duncan Geere visualized and sonified Covid-19 rates and vaccinations in London Under the Microscope. Best viewed with headphones on. Geere on the sound: Here’s how it works. There are two melodic saw wave drones separated by an octave – the higher represents cases, and the lower represents deaths. The chords that make them up each reflect the balance of different variants over time. As the...

A flag planted for every Covid-19 death

In fall 2020, Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg planted a flag for each American who died from Covid-19. There were over a quarter of a million flags at the time. The art installation is back at the National Mall, but this time there are over 660,000 flags. The scale is just…a lot. Tags: coronavirus, flags, physical, Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg

But then you keep clicking the refresh arrow and realize the fish are procedurally generated, including the name on the bottom. So good. Tags: drawing, fish, Lingdong Huang, procedural
