Killing Season Chicago is a data-driven art installation by Chicago-based artist, Krista Wortendyke that explores the relationship between climate and violence. With the help of grants from the Puffin Foundation and Columbia College, the website presents photographs from the 172 homicide sites in Chicago from Memorial Day to Labor Day in 2010.
Cody Bailey-Wickins, Front End Developer at Liqui-Site, produced a custom, responsive website with an automated, horizontal scroll that mimics walking along the installation—the same way one would interact with it in-person. The website also features an interactive homicide map to pinpoint each location on Google maps, with the ability to view information about the deceased.
“Working collaboratively with Krista Wortendyke to bring her vision to life resulted in a project that could not have been more successful. I’m incredibly proud of the Liqui-Site team—especially Front End Developer, Cody Bailey-Wickins—for his dedication to pushing the boundaries of custom WordPress development and his meticulous execution of this project,” said Kelly Campbell, President and CRO of Liqui-Site.
