Participatory installation for spontaneous group data realization

If a picture is worth a thousand words then a proper information graphic might be worth double that. But even info graphics only get us so far. We need data realization — to share truth via meaningful participation.

The image implicates large wealth inequalities in fomenting violent revolutions. We organized residents of A-Z West in Joshua Tree to enjoy the facts together. When it comes to violent response, the bullseye is rarely hit. The shot-through target visualizes the collateral damage inadvertently caused by upheavals. What group actions can we take to stave off the problem?
