The City <br> I Live In

Richmond, VA

Over the years, the city I live in has become the subject of many of my own projects. I am fascinated by how this place has been shaped by its tumultuous history. Chalkboards with screen-printed maps of Richmond placed around the city prompts people to share, and circle, their favorite spaces. A lightbox overlays geographic data on subjects such as poverty, food deserts, and population distribution by race. An audio documentary tells the story of a street’s transformation from the perspectives of passers-by.
