Jam Jar & Jelly Baby Representation

I took lead on the development of the jam jar and jelly baby data visualisation. This visualisation represents the average amount of deaths over the last 10 years in each county in the Republic of Ireland based on RSA and Gardaí data. The 26 identical jars represent each county and the jelly babies represent the average of people who died. Underneath each jar lid contains the average number of fatalities per county.

This project makes for interesting viewing as the juxtaposition between the sweet and colourful jelly babies and a dark, morbid dataset creates a form of shock value for the audience.It was compelling to see how different people interpreted the visualisation. The project was set up and displayed for an audience in CIT for viewing and interaction.
