Grand Old Party
GRAND OLD PARTY is a data visualization of voter approval rates among registered Republicans for each of the 2012 GOP candidates. The height is a measurement of time, beginning December 10, 2011 and ending on April 1, 2012 (bottom to top). The width of each object is the quantity by percentage (out of 100%) of approval for that candidate. All data comes directly from Gallup polls.
Jer Thorp encouraged our Data Representation class to explore more physical representations of data beyond the screen. I also wanted to explore a serious data set in a humorous way. Most importantly, I thought it was essential to take a clearly subjective stance in the representation of objective data.
