Vanishing Act

The narrative of mass extinction is one of extremes, animals are killed in massive proportions, species go extinct at alarming rates and entire ecosystems are wiped out. The information graphics in this work aim to illustrate the massive numbers of animal deaths whilst being supplemented by more traditional, straightforward graphs. Data has been taken from a series of sources incloding the TEEB, IUCN and WWf. The largest illustrative moment, a mural of 100 extinct animals from the last century, takes up the majority of one side of the foldout.
