32: Quantifying our Lives

Post  Admin on Thu Mar 26, 2015 12:36 pm

Background: If you haven't yet, watch the TED talk with Chris Jordan. If you have extra time, also check out Laurie Frick: http://www.lauriefrick.com/category/work/

Project: Using photography and photoshop, pick one aspect of life that people or society can change, and that can be quantified (represented by numbers). The topic or subject is your choice, it can be personal and about you or your habits, or it can be statistics from a local, national or international level.

Find a way to show the quantity in a visual way. Move beyond a basic excel graph for this project - think more in terms of art that might be shown in a gallery, not a graph that would be in a textbook. Creative solutions are encouraged!

Add a written statement to your post explaining what you are showing.

Grading: 4 points possible

1 point: Creativity
1 point: Communicating the idea.
1 point: Aesthetics (does it look artistic?)
1 point: Attention to detail and technical skill.

This photo is representing how much gas is pushed into the air. The number is very large so I created a photo of a car on the road with gas pipes of a car.

I tried to represent that 88% of the oceans surface is covered with trash by filling up a large portion of the water in my photograph with trash.

"The Seeds of Hate"
In 2011, the FBI reported 1,572 hate crime victims targeted based on a sexual orientation bias, making up 20.4% of the total hate crimes for that year. That needs to change.

c. 70~80% of words (depending on the dialect and register) coined by William Shakespeare are still current. Due to the approximate nature of the quantity and the little that we actually know about Shakespeare with authority, his outline is faint and the color is disfigured. To show the quantity, around 70% up his face the colors are warmer and lively, but above that they turn purple and deader.

Over 510,000 American children are in foster care, taken away when their families are in crisis and canít take care of them. Each key on the rings represent a child in foster care.

Revized description:

These 5 states have the most animal abuse. The dots behind them represent the overall amount of animals abused each year which is about a million.
