Spatial Analysis

Project Type: Study
Location: Loop, Chicago
Year: Fall 2014

Project Brief: I spent a total of six consecutive hours on a bench at a public park to record how many people touched the “Borders” installation by Icelandic artist Steinunn Þórarinsdóttir. I made my recordings on trace paper. I recorded the types of people and even mapped out their paths. After collecting all the information, I translated it into a digital chart and overlaid the data to create an analytical 3-Dimensional space. I then further manipulated that data to create a series of camera filters. These camera filters were brought back to the site and photographed at spots in an attempt to view the site with a new lens. The constant translations and transformations from medias allowed me to create new perceptions and forms that otherwise would not have been noticed.
