Rhythm of a Virus
April 22, 2020
An animated data visualization by MEPTIK
Our hope with this piece is to encourage the community on both local and global levels to stay home and flatten the curve of COVID-19. Every design seen in this piece is driven by data, in real time, to bring a visual awareness to the devastating impact of this virus. It’s challenging to remain creative during this uncertain time, but creating art that has an overarching message for the good of the community is important to us. To do this, we’ve stuck to the tried and true tools we used for concert visuals and live experiences alike.
