Data Visualizations


Being a Millennial Adult

I asked my friends and acquaintances to fill out a survey. I wanted to collectively look at the results and create a snapshot of how we, as young millennials think. I created 3 different visualizations, each designed to focus on a specific aspect of the collected data. The quick results of this survey can be found here.

Week of Food Encounters

Inspired by Giorgia Lupi's Dear Data project, I decided to draw one myself. I wanted to illustrate my diet for a week. It wasn't meant to count my calorie, carb, protein, fat or sugar intake, but understand the consistency of my eating habits. This project tested my data logging skills. The hand-drawn result revealed that while my meal times were often late, they were at least consistent. Additionally I realized how many small yet noteworthy portions of processed foods I was eating.

Lotka Volterra equations

In this project, I wanted to simplify a complex science topic. I leveraged the power of storytelling to make the mathematical equations more enjoyable and compelling. I attempted to explain the food-cylce population patterns in nature using animated graphs. To build this, I used JavaScript d3 library to easily render graphs and enable interactivity.

The Golden Ratio

Inspired by Nadieh Bremer's The Art in pi project and my love for mathematics, I created a visualization of another important math constant - The Golden Ratio. This number had first caught my attention a few years back when I read Dan Brown's book The Da Vinci Code, and its presence in our everyday lives seemed very intriguing. I used Illustrator to represent this number and leveraged the number's visual pattern to illustrate its digits.
