the thin layer
who? how we get to next’s podcast series, the thin layer, explores the one thing that connects climate change, desertification, mars colonization, medicine, and food security: soil.
what? as a bonus feature of sorts, duncan geere and i collaborated to create a interactive visual essay on the subject of neglected tropical diseases.
how? while duncan did the data analysis and writing for this piece, i was in charge of the illustration, layout, and front-end development. this was my first experience working remotely (me in chicago, duncan in gothenburg) and we made it possible by bouncing ideas off each other, leaving each other daily updates to have for the next day, and using github for version control.
