Assignment 5: Quantifying our Lives due 2/23

Post  Admin on Fri Feb 19, 2016 12:22 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, or just pasting something in a rectangle 500 times. 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.



Examples from  previous students:

A new baby usually deprives each of its parents around 350-400 hours of sleep in the first year. That is one entire night's sleep per week.

------------------

A new study from the department of education showed that 74.7 students of all ethnicities graduated highschool this year in America and it's the highest it's ever been since 1973.
The number of graduation caps and diploma's represent how many students graduated highschool in 2013.

Rape in the U.S.
Recap on information: On average there are 293,066 sexual assault and rape victims. About 30,000+ of those victims are in fact male. Rape is a big issue across the globe and these are only numbers from our country and that is why I chose this topic.

I decided to incorporate this info by displaying the data through the images of a Barbie's abdomen and breast, a male statue's abdomen and private part, and a teal ribbon that is often used to support the end of sexual violence. The repetitiveness of these images give an estimated sum of 2,900. This represents 1% of rape victims in the U.S. per year, men and women above the age of 12. "We Said No" represents it all.

I know it's not one of my best work, and I really feel inadequate for this piece. I tried something new, I don't usually draw, but it's a one time thing.  Every year 2.7 million cats and dogs are put down each year in shelters. 71% of cats that enter the shelter are euthanized. there are 270 paws in this picture, each for 100,000 animals that wind up in shelters.

This pixel art is supposed to represent the number of babies that are aborted. At least 4 out of 10 women get abortions each year. From far away, it looks like a happy little pattern, if you look closely you can see the fetus under the red x.

i think Detroit mayor it self needs to be under investigation because these last couple of years things Snyder was sweeping under the rug has been coming out and especially the flint water crises i mean how could do this to a bunch of people just for some money Snyder is worse than quamby kill patrick and thats not all we also need to focus on the crimes going on Detroit from the car jacking to the homicides to me chief James Craig would been better off being mayor because at least he knows how to handle situations better than Snyder

I did a piece on how many people don't receive treatment for an emotional disorder. Around 1 in 45 (estimate) don't receive treatment for their disorder in the US. There are around 45 crosses in each row, one being crossed out for someone being treated/ have been treated for their disorder. There are pills at the bottom because that is one form of treatment. Psychotherapy is another form, but I couldn't figure out an effective way to portray that treatment.

i did the american prison population vs. the russian prison population
the thing on the left shows the american population and how much more people are locked up (over 2,220,300). the one on the right shows the russian population and shows how few people are criminals there  (874,161). its a big gap there

This is a photo designed to show that the salary of a woman is significantly lower than the salary of a man just because of gender.

My statistic was that one in five women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime, my graphic is showing that even though they look the same, one in five women will be plagued by thoughts of their assailant while the rest can live their life normally.

The cat and dog is forming the number 7.6 to represent that 7.6 million animals (mostly cats and dogs) are found as strays on the streets and taken into shelters.

This picture was the show just how many kids underage have been drinking. In this photo there are 200 bottles and for each bottle it counts as 191630 kids who would have drunk this month.

Each year approximately 2.7 animals are euthanized (about 1.2 million dogs and 1.4 million cat) due to not finding a home or being in a shelter for a long period of time. The needles represent the euthanasia shots each animal get.
