The Long Run by The BMA, The BMJ

A physical dataviz installation that represents the cost of health care for different age groups, based on the time it takes for a marble to fall. Each of the 7 runs represents a different decade of life, and the fall time represents the average cost of care to the UK's National Health Service, for a person in that year of their life. Each run is constructed from medical equipment. It was commissioned to mark the NHS's 70th Birthday on the 5 July 2018.
