DOT OR HOLE
DOT OR HOLE is a book made out of statistics
 
 
 
 
 
I collected data from the USA Government and Wikipedia about different issues that affect the world today and reflected them individually along the book. I used the map of the world to place one dot in each country, the size of each dot changes depending on the rate of that country, so by removing the map a high contrast of dots is created in each page, like abstract paintings.

By making a book of 22 different pages I created a unique visual experience that makes the viewer have an easy approach to the differences between countries in the world during 2012.
 
Will globalization make all the dots become more equal with time?
 
 
 
I erased the world map and substituted each country in the world by a dot. One dot, one country.
