In the field of anxiety
(DARIA MILYUKHINA, ANTON SOSULNIKOV)
Project link: inthefieldofanxiety.com
The project depicts anxiety caused by exposure to the current-day media environment.
Shown as a webpage, the project consists of data points and visual output that portrays the degree of panic at a given moment.
A web server uses open data on COVID-19 to calculate the level of anxiety and visually correlates it with trending stories around the globe from the NewsApi service. The project happens in real time and changes occur immediately as the situation changes around the world.
The exact level of anxiety is shown in the looped photograph of a man wearing masks. The large number of masks shows the futility of panic. The number of masks, the clarity, color and the photograph’s playback tempo all depend on the level of anxiety.
