Visualizing Palestine

Visualizing Palesine is new project whose website is yet to fully launch but already they have used their Twitter account to release this amazing graphic. It combines a history of hunger strikes around the world with a factual illustration of what Palestinian political prisoner Khader Adnan must have been going through since he started the 66-day hunger strike that concluded yesterday after a deal to release him in April was reached.

The group tells me via email: “VisualizingPalestine is the intersection of communication, social sciences, technology, design and urban studies for social justice. VisualizingPalestine uses creative visuals to describe a factual rights-based narrative of Palestine/Israel.” As well as their website and Twitter account they have a Facebook page.

They also tell me there are a lot more such projects in the works. Looks very much like a project to keep an eye on.
