2020 – COVID-19 Deaths as Nails

  

An art installation in the Cathedral of Schwäbisch Gmünd (Germany) shows COVID-19 deaths as nails hammered into wooden cubes. More nails are added as the number of deaths increase. The text down the steps says "Fürchtet euch nicht", meaning "do not be afraid".

Also see our other entries on single-datum physical visualizations and on conveying deaths.
