This project was motivated by the rise of right-wing extremism across Europe. Jonathan Ravasz created a visual representation of the state of support for extremist ideologies.
The top layer of the visualization is a distorted map (cartogram), created by Scapetoad. Each country’s borders are scaled by the values of the DEREX Index. These distorted borders also function as the base of the bar chart — higher demand for extremism equals deeper levels on the visualization.
The object was cut using a CNC hot wire cutter, from 6 1200x500x100 mm XPS panels.
