Lines of Vision is a collection of infographic portraits. Each response is illustrated within a visual system that tells you a little bit about who that person is and where they come from. I believe that each of our vantage points is intrinsically tied to the places where our feet are planted, and the people who surround us there. Remembering this helps me stay empathetic when that feels difficult to do.
Lines of Vision was originally intended to be part of MICA’s MA Illustration 2020 Grad Show: Making Sense, which has since been canceled because of COVID19. We hope to have an in-person exhibit sometime in the future.
What excites you about America?
What worries you about America?
These portraits were created using responses from a survey taken by 200 individuals from all over the country throughout February of 2020. At the time I did not know that I was capturing a snapshot of American opinions at a very particular point in time, just before we entered a global pandemic. I never could have predicted how different the answers to those questions would be just a few weeks later. It has now become a time capsule of where we were before everything changed.
