Design 384: Information Visualization, Winter '21
During my Junior year, I was asked to take a large set of data and turn it into a visual essay. As a Texas native, I thought it might be interesting to explore the deeply racist history of my home, and in particular, look at the carceral state. Thus, the following essay and accompanying graphics are a result of my research on the inmates on death row in Texas. The specific data points I chose to focus on were age, race, education level, and the time spent on death row, and if I could continue my work, I think I would focus on gender as well. Over the course of two weeks, I compiled my data into Excel and created graphics in Figma.
