The word 'utopia', in the ancient Greek period = 'no place'... Looking at
all of the catastrophes taking place globally, while living in the stresses of today's society can make it hard to believe in a place equated with
such perfection. And although many like to be aware of political issues, or current events, taking a step back and being able to really get a visual
sense of what is going on can bring you back to
reality, if you were to snap out of it.
Promise of heaven, production of hell is a website I made, that provides a collective data on the major natural disasters that occurred around the
world in 2015, as well as a comparison with a more fixed human variable, by using data of homicide rates, primarily from the UNODC database and
statistics research, gathered information from the most recent year
The website is divided up into half,black and white, separating the "direct affect" we all have in global warming, and the effects that is causing,
being juxtaposed by the more direct, and intentional results caused through homicide. At the same time, they share the commonality of the hardships
that they bestow on their victims, and their families, until they are
eventually reduced to numbers, in the more broader and pessimistic sense.
I changed the format of the font, to exaggerate words, or numbers that will grab attention. All of the data is divided into multiple subcategories
depending the event in question. However mainly by continents, then
breaking up further into categories for the disaster at play.
