Notes

Abstract: More people died in the 1918 Flu Pandemic than in WWI and WWII combined, yet it’s often referred to as the “forgotten pandemic” by historians (e.g. Crosby). Using innovative methods to sonify and haptify data sets, a team of transdisciplinary ASU scholars is designing an installation to “re-embody” pandemic data. We will develop ways for visitors to feel/hear the unfolding of the pandemic in both time and space and highlight the ways in which illness spread across the diverse communities of the young state of Arizona. Our presentation will include a show and tell of the technologies, methods, and data used to construct these encounters.
