Where Are You From?: Participatory Mapping with New Yorkers (2015)

Data Visualization, Participatory Design

“Where Are You From?” is a data visualization (data string) installation that evolved with people’s participation, unveiling social pattern with the information given by participants in Bryant Park in New York City. Because of the unique demographics of NYC that shows its broad ethnic diversity, I was wondering where people originally came from and also curious about their immigration and travel stories.
