Sugar Consumption channel: data visualization
“Added sugars, especially from sugar-sweetened beverages, are strongly linked to the development of Type 2 Diabetes. This is likely due to sugar’s direct effect on your liver, as well as its indirect effect of increasing body weight.”

Project Brief -
Collect a data set that interests you and create an engaging and immersive experience that displays multiple variables at once.
This data visualization shows an overview of five countries’ average sugar intake while also displaying the prevalence of Type 2 Diabetes in cases per 100,000. This large-scale installation shows data in the form of large lollipops and uses candy to represent numbers.
Creating an experience that is impactful for the viewer and shows multiple variables at once without cluttering the experience.
Throughout the course of this project, I improved my skills in time management and planning out the logistics of a life-size installation.
