The Human Immune System

The Human Immune System: Trillions of different elements work together, activate themselves, communicate, give attack and retreat commands. And always find the right answer for every enemy. Hundreds of billions of cells, that work like one big, intelligent war machinery. The Immune System consists of 24 cell types, which have 12 different functions - up to four different one per cell. This leads to very complex interactions between the cells - so complex indeed, that it is very hard to grasp without deep knowledge about medicine. My project enables the user to understand the immune system, without requiring knowledge about medicine or bio chemistry. This is accomplished by visualizations, infographics, and reduction - Understanding through design.
