The sketch is live here!


My goal for this project was to create a visualization of period cramps. I’ve first hand experienced many cramps so intense that I’ve broken into a cold sweat, vomited, and tried to chase the extreme pain with liquid-gel Advils.

In this visualization, clicking will spawn blue pills. The blood particles will disappear when they make contact with the capsules, but the pills themselves will too disappear over time.

This project turned out differently than I initialized imagined. I’d hoped to create more “blood clots” by linking together the red polygons, but had issues with the frame rate dropping too low. Though this sketch is missing many nuances of the experience its based off of, I’m relatively happy with how it turned out.
