A visual representation of seven individuals' perceptions of New York City, presented in the form of seven posters. Each poster displays a different cognitive map of the city, as well as distinguishing information provided by the participants involved in the project.
This project was based on my desire to understand and communicate the bias that exists in the creation of maps. I wanted to emphasize this topic by designing maps that are intentionally biased and, in turn, show peoples' unique perspective of the same environment. I decided to focus on New York City.
My main goal was to display the relationship between a person's weekly routine and their perception of New York City. I collaborated with seven people and utilized geolocation tracking, interviews, and cognitive mapping exercises. I wanted to use graphic design to effectively communicate the relationship between personal routine and environmental perception.
