The introductory project in RISD’s Graphic Design graduate program is a collaborative atlas. After undergoing a series of twelve disparate tasks across the city of Providence, my challenge was to synthesize my findings and present them as a sixteen-page signature to be included in the aforementioned atlas.
The common thread that united my findings was the abundance of metadata — data about data — attributed to each of the tasks. I chose to center my contribution around this particular source of information, which unearthed an array of insights and otherwise hidden details about a set of rather open-ended instructions.
