Data Visualization of David Bowie
Data Visualization | 02 2016
When rock stars die, they are never gone. They continue to be memorialized by millions of their fans, music lovers, and the public. Their songs are played again and again, and as cultural icons, their life stories are discovered, passed on, and exaggerated year after year. This project is a data visualization exploring the “aliveness” of David Bowie. Based on the database of the Seattle Public Library from 2006-2015, I visualize the checkout times and durations of David Bowie’s related items.
