Week 10 – Lab Reflection + Reading Response

Part 2: “Re-Designing Visualizations” Response

Sketch:

My visualization tries to change the narrative by emphasizing the ongoing pandemics that are affecting the world. AIDS/HIV and COVID-19 are still ongoing pandemics but the AIDS/HIV epidemic is still not resolved or stopped. Although COVID-19 is a major problem right now, we shouldn’t forget on going pandemics like HIV/AIDS. My redesign tries to simplify the major impact the bubonic plague had on the world population which is easily read by the graph. However, it compares current pandemics in the present day which are minuscule to to the deaths of the past.

  1. Hi Alex, I like how you re-designed the visual by emphasizing the ongoing pandemics that are currently unresolved and without a cure. Even though other pandemics had harsher impacts on the world in the past, it’s important to realize that we must focus on resolving the problems that will lead to the future.

  2. I agree with your visualization making the impact much more clear visually. Having a 3D representation of the impact by volume is somewhat more confusing than a model that shows it in a linear two dimension format.
