Bruises: The Data we Don't See | Nature–Design Triennial
This data visualization offers a holistic method for understanding the impact of a child’s illness. Musician Kaki King charted the clinical data of her daughter’s experience with the autoimmune disease idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, as well as observations of her own emotions during the terrifying 4 months after diagnosis. King and Giorgia Lupi transformed these data into a visualization that correlates the clinical and the emotional, accompanied by a “musical map.” On view in "Nature–Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial" through January 2020. This video is described.
