Personal Visualization for the Obsessive Compulsive

Posted to Data Art  |  Nathan Yau

Ash Spurr, in a project to try to understand Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, took inventory of and categorized every distinguishable object in his bedroom - books, DVDs, CDs, documents, storage bins...

[Thanks, Tim]
