This wonderfully hypnotic animation is the work of Eleanor Lutz. Lutz specialises in taking science data and turning it into visualisations that make sense.
In this case Lutz is showing a zygote becomes a baby using a style designed by Nicolas Fong.
Despite the success, Lutz wasn’t entirely happy. She wrote;
I am a little sad that I wasn’t able to show size properly though. For example. the 24 week fetus is about 40 times heavier than a 12 week fetus (but you can’t tell that from this drawing).

If you could ask Eleanor Lutz to visualise any set of data what would you ask her to do?
