The Answer

The Answer

The Answer

Let's combine art and data as a design material to create a beautiful story about human resilience and bonding.

The result was a large-scale projection entitled UPROAR. This piece, which pays homage to the resilience of the people of Houston, simultaneously visualizes storm data from Hurricane Harvey and Twitter mentions of #HOUSTONSTRONG. Precipitation rates, wind speeds, and water levels were all provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Twitter was used to track the number of tweets and retweets of #HOUSTONSTRONG over the course of 4 days.

The result was powerful. Two opposing waves approach each other, one a natural disaster, another the human response, with humanity standing defiant and reclaiming a ravaged geography.
