pain — data visualisation
Emotions have a high impact. There is often a correlation
between the body and the mind, especially by
negative emotions like pain.
Pain is an unique feeling. Everybody experiences pain
differently. Physical pain can go along with mental pain.
And vice versa. But how strong do people feel the
influence and effect of these two pains at each other?
The visualisation shows the two types
of pain and their impact on each other.
An anonymous survey in the course about the last felt
physical and psychological pain build the database of
the project. The survey includes questions like the
intensity and duration of the pain, trigger points, and
other caused emotions. The triangle shape allows for
easy comparison. The sharp edges form a metaphor for
pain, which gains or loses control through stretching or
compression. The bright colors represent the intensity
of the pain.
