Landscapes of Inequality

This series of large scale prints shows visualizations of median household income in selected cities. The images are abstract height maps on a high-resolution matrix of cubes. The height of the cubes corresponds to the income in the respective output area. The growing series currently covers Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Paris.
The intention was to show income segregation through striking images that retain the visual footprint of the city’s street grid. Here, income segregation is a literal wall in a geographic sense, where people from one area do not have acces to the other.
