United States of Mind is an interactive data visualization that illustrates the increase in heroin related deaths in the US over the last decade. Each bag of ‘heroin’ is associated with a different year between 2006 and 2016. When a bag is ‘weighed’ on the ‘scale’ the total number of deaths for the year it represents is illustrated on the LED panel. The data is also presented visually with a bar graph in which each illuminated LED symbolizes 50 of the deceased.
