The Augmented History project investigates the forgotten history of Reynolds Coliseum as a major cultural center for the city of Raleigh, NC and seeks to preserve this cultural history through the use of emerging technology in Augmented Reality.
The scope of this project is to visualize the data behind the data of a Wikipedia page. Who creates and edits these pages? Who views them? And, what does this tell us about the context of the information we so often take for granted? The following graphs each bring to life a different aspect of the data behind Wikipedia’s entry for “Imperialism,” so that we might be able to read the story between the lines.
The United States of Diaspora
This infographic is part of a project to both investigate the causes of immigration to the United States, and to better understand the people who choose to come here.
Urban Segregation & Income Inequality – Raleigh, NC
As we move through our daily routines, going from home to work and back again, it can be easy to lose focus of those around us. Though we may interact with people of diverse ethnic backgrounds throughout the day, can we consider each other to be neighbors? Are we all part of the same community, or do our paths diverge once we head home for the night?
This interactive visualization, coded using Processing, attempts to uncover some of the hidden patterns of segregation in the neighborhoods that make up Raleigh, NC. Through it, we can see just how divided our community remains and the correlating patterns of income inequality that haunt these unofficial enclaves.
If we are to become a more integrated community, the first step is to understand the forces which divide us.
“Separate Is Not Equal”
The history of segregation and inequality in the United States did not end in the civil rights era. This short documentary of historical photographs features the voice of Leslie Odom Jr., reading “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” written in 1963 by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The music is from Sweet Honey in the Rock’s rendition of “Eyes on the Prize (Hold On).”
