As Barack Obama’s second presidential term neared, I wondered how we could show the timeline of the country in recent years. I worked to find data stretching back to 1933 while artist Maxwell illustrated the information. Each bit of data is intended to be a measure of something heavily impacted by the president.

I also found historic milestones of Obama’s first term, coupled with his approval rating by week, to provide more detail leading up to his second term.
