Project description:

We don’t want to spoil the reveal, so take the quick quiz for yourself!

Impact reached:

The project challenged what we thought we knew and provided a new was of thinking about time and perception.

Techniques/technologies used:

We processed the photos in Adobe Photoshop and built the site using HTML/CSS/JS. We used Firebase to collect data.

What was the hardest part of this project?

The most challenging part was having a hunce about what the data would reveal, but not being able to see the shape of the data until people went through the quiz. The experience and charts were designed without an idea of what the end data could look like.

What can others learn from this project?

Important stories don’t have to be built around grand narratives, you can create impact with a simple, memorable idea.
