Santa Monica Wellbeing Summit
Client: City of Santa Monica
Agency: Schema Design
Role: Creative Technologist
The City of Santa Monica spearheaded an initiative that municipalities across the globe have begun to explore called the Wellbeing Index: a system for determining, and addressing, the wellbeing of its citizens.
As part of this initiative the City held a Wellbeing Summit in the fall of 2019 to invite citizens to participate in workshops and conferences, present their findings and create a street fair style event with health and wellbeing oriented local businesses participating.
Schema Design was commissioned to create a video presented at the Summit showcasing findings from the Santa Monica Wellbeing Index research and data. I worked with designer Dwayne Franco to craft this video from raw survey results. Using Processing and the Box2D library we created a whimsical, yet informative, motion data visualization providing citizens with insights into their own communities’ well being.
