This is data visualization with empty chairs. It was the Christmas Holiday campaign from TAC Road Safety, the Transport Accident Commission in Victoria region in Australia.

A 65m long table complete with 257 empty chairs sits as a grim reminder of the road toll in 2012. Each empty place remembers a life lost on Victorian roads. Tribute tweets and instagram shots were directed to #aplacetoremember. As the road toll rises chairs were added to the table. Over the time of the installation 6 chairs joined the table.

“This many people won’t make it to Christmas lunch.”
