My experimental project shows the amount of people injured or killed from road accidents in Thailand by extracting real-time data extracted from the Accident Data Center for Road Safety Culture: Thai RSC www.thairsc.com. The number of burned matches in each line represents the amount of people killed each day.
Amount many reasons this project was created for, the project was meant to make people realise of road traffic accidents nowadays. Since road traffic accidents in Thailand have been dramatically increased, it is very important to raise people’s awareness of the situation. Being injured in a car accident myself has woken me up. Also it was the reason that I’d like to make this project as another channel to tell people of has happened. Each matches that was lighted up was a metaphor for life losing and damage happening.
