The Siang Ching paper charts are a new type of educational resource that blends the lines between gallery exhibit and educational resource.

There is an old adage, 'A picture is worth a thousand words,' whose relevance could not be truer than in today's rich-media focused society. The rise of Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest play off the innate draw of vivid visuals. It is this reason that also lends to the popularity of infographics, which can present information spanning a number of topics in an animated way. The Siang Chiang mortality stats chart melds art and digital graphic design into one. The life-sized gallery-worthy infographic is made out of folded pieces of colored construction paper, yielding a result of tangible, 3D representation of the world's leading mortality factors.
