In my studio class, we focused a lot on visual cultures. Because of this, we looked at culture on a personal scale as well
For this week’s map, we went out in groups of 3 throughout Chinatown. My group mainly walked around the main street of the neighborhood and spotted a lot of neon lights along the few blocks catching the attention of consumers to come into the various shops, restaurants, or groceries. 2015 was the year of the goat, so we laid out the lights to form the Chinese character for goat. It also resembles what intersecting streets might look like.
