Detroit Wall Map: Different Data


The Design Inquiry (DI) group made up of Dan McCafferty, Joshua Singer, Patricio Davila, and Rachele Riley created this installation at MOCAD based on some of our data and others:

The Different Data Detroit project is a mapping of various narratives of the city of Detroit, combining and layering data gathered from diverse sources: information on water usage and future water infrastructure (from Detroit Future City proposal and Detroitography); visualizations and reports on spaces in Detroit whose official use is ‘unknown’ (as determined by Data Driven Detroit in their recent Motor City Mapping Parcel Survey); historical maps, large sample collections of typographic typologies from the urban landscape; our own photography, notes, and GIS mappings from field visits in the city; imaginary structures that delineate hidden pasts.
