Visualising audio for an alternative perspective

This is a visualisation of an interview I did with a guy called Joe who was diagnosed with leukemia aged 18. He talked to me about his experiences very openly and confidently but as you can see from the image he used a large number of fillers such as ‘like’ ‘just’ and ‘really’. (The bigger words are the ones that crop up most option).

I found this really interesting as when I was listening to him talk, combined with his body language, he seemed very confident and at ease. Transported into a data graphic, however, I would suggest that he was actually quite nervous and uncomfortable talking about the treatment.
