Bryan & Riley Barnhil: i.Detroit – a Human Atlas of an American City.
The Human Atlas project is a research-based, interdisciplinary exploration of people from specified geographies, built from an extensive nomination process. A carefully curated group of experts nominate individuals who are championing change and driving social impact in all its forms: from public servants to entrepreneurs, from non-profit leaders and activists to artists and scientists. The projects then map these remarkable people through portraits, app-based oral histories, info-graphic mapping and ancestral DNA. Human Atlas projects take on many forms but always begin as a limited edition book and an interactive exhibition.
