Giving Scale to an Immeasurable Loss
- Purpose: This projects creates a different way to visualize the scale of loss of life in the COVID-19 pandemic in the US. It is a memorial for the 500,000 lives lost in the COVID-19 pandemic that places a 1:1 number of people in places around the US that people may know.
- Role: Project Concept, Web app, Software engineering
- Outcomes: Interactive web app
- Context: Professional Work, academic context
All our US Covid Deaths is an interactive map-based site that I created with Susan Paykin. By placing people in places that are well-known public spaces around the country, it might make the scale of the pandemic real, tangible, and meanignful.
