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… It’s a simple idea yet really interesting. OCD – yet another example for you to take part and enjoy our summer project. What does your room look like in data?
