The news cycle of 2020 was like a steady diet of empty calories and fast food—and so with the dawn of 2021, it’s utterly refreshing to see some proverbial vegetables at play.
With “Carrot Goods,” Bina Thorsen is serving up some data viz, veggie-style.
“Since this past year has been absolutely terrible, I decided to research the things that are actually getting better in the world,” she says. “I made this infographics poster series with good news, or Carrot Goods, to show all the things that are, in fact, improving.”
With most stats deriving from Hans’ Rosling’s book Factfulness, it’s a fine antidote to the toxic chatter of “fake news”—and all around, an uplifting project that provides a healthy dose of positivity in the wake of a most unhealthy year.
