No Roads: A Study in Mapping Social Data


Undergraduate project that compiled disparate data, screen printed on acetate sheets. Post-bound into a 9" x 12" atlas. Users were encouraged to shuffle data sheets as a way to see overlaps and density. Below are some odd and interesting examples of data combination. Data from 2002–2004, various sources. Please contact me if you wish to use this in a talk or publication.
