Bruises—The Data We Don’t See, 2018
It was designed by Giorgia Lupi and Accurat and music composed by Kaki King. It is dated 2018. Its medium is data visualization with original score, still, prepatory sketch. It is a part of the department.
This data visualization offers a holistic method for understanding the impact of a child’s illness. Musician Kaki King charted the clinical data of her daughter’s experience with the autoimmune disease idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, as well as observations of her own emotions during the terrifying 4 months after diagnosis. King and Giorgia Lupi transformed these data into a visualization that correlates the clinical and the emotional, accompanied by a “musical map.”
