Dressed in Data

Dressed in Data is a series of garments with lace patterns or prints that represent the concentrations of chemicals detected in an individuals' home. Squares in the pattern represent chemicals detected and are sized based on the amount of the chemical found. This is intended to give a "one glance" intuitive understanding of an individual's exposures. Further information on chemical sources and health effects can be conveyed through color choices, fabric, and pattern design.
