A Decade of Mass Shootings in America

A Decade of Mass Shootings in America: 2007 - 2017

Graphics Key_Horz_Sound.jpg

A data sonification illustrating mass shootings in America: number of casualties, amount of money spent lobbying for gun rights and for gun control, number of federal gun control bills proposed and passed. I assigned a percussive sound to and animated each data point to see if perhaps intaking the information in a different way would break through and spur action.

Below are animation treatments for the 2007 and 2017 datasets. Videos for 2008 to 2016 show the barebone sonifications of the data.
