[This is a guest post by Raissa D’uffizi* and Camilla Pisani*, about their project “The Living World”.]
“L’universo abitativo” [The living world] is an infographic created with the use of graphic elements such as orbits, planets and constellations. The goal is explain the social condition of immigrants linked with house universe in Rome, Italy. The data were divided according to thematic areas of belonging expressed with different colors.
The concept comes from the idea of recreating a universe that is made up of representatives and planets orbits related to housing. The basic geometric shape used is the circle. The circle is added with other full circle that vary in size compared to the percentage represented. The solid circle is added to the wording of the data and its percentage.
COLORS AND THEMES
The color green is associated with the theme of the house in which they are listed types, the square and the rooms. The dark green color illustrates the reasons why immigrants move away from their country of origin and opportunities that find in Italy. The red exposes the data for the liking and the problems encountered in Italy. The purple represents the ethnic groups of immigrants divided according to the municipalities of Rome, while the pink color indicates the buying and selling of the homes of immigrants. Finally, the water green face data on the economic and housing conditions of Italians in their thirties. The infographic shows that the condition of the Italian thirties is not so different from that of immigrants who live in Italy.
