drawing of leaf, U.S. healthcare spending, particle physics tracks, and dots by Lauren Gohara
Do You Think You Can Tell #35
Graphite, colored pencil, archival pigmented ink on paper
8-1/2 x 5-3/4 in

A rendering of a dried basswood leaf swells on the left. Its jagged edges are echoed in the steeply rising stair-step increase in health care spending in the graph to its right, which plots the change in U.S. health care spending per capita from the 1970s to 2000s. There has been a nearly ten-fold increase over the past 40 years. Behind, pale graphite dots drift through; and behind those ghostly particle physics tracks fall through the space.
