Three Trips

A diagrammatic and typographic representation of three separate, differently-scaled journeys with a common starting point. We begin at 15 Westminster Street in Providence, Rhode Island at the center and proceed to destinations extremely close and faraway alike. Rather than simply plotting lines on a geographic map and declaring the project finished, I wanted to see how far I could distort physical geography and distance to call attention to, and simplify, the topology of the system. A particular challenge I imposed upon myself was to use only type and objective elements such as straight lines and dots. In addition, how could I make these journeys about more than just the act of transportation itself, and emphasize the places and other information collected along the way?
