March 23rd 2020: lockdown begins. For 103 days we counted as people got sick, were tested, lost businesses, were laid-off, furloughed, signed-on, suffered depression, anxiety, fear, asked for help, received support. But the data is only half the story. This online, multimedia scrollable story brings the numbers to life with first person testimonies in video, audio and writing.
Based on local and national data about the COVID-19 pandemic and commissioned by the University of Brighton research project ART/DATA/HEALTH: data as creative material for health and wellbeing, with the support of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).
