The GO collaborative team, Fisterra Studio, Public City, Austin Creative Alliance, and the City of Austin, is proud to announce Drawing Lines, an ArtPlace funded project.
Historically, Austin has had an at-large representation on its city council. However, in November 2014 the city will transition to a system where council members represent specific districts. This new political landscape presents many opportunities and challenges to the city as well as its citizens. This is where Drawing Lines comes in.
Through this project, Fisterra Studio will collaborate with ten artists working within each district to create a work that expresses a collective understanding of Austin’s diverse communities. The project will run from Fall 2014 – Fall 2015, culminating in public exhibitions. Artists’ projects and the City of Austin’s GIS-based cultural asset maps will be featured.

Thank you ArtPlace for this amazing opportunity to participate in documenting change through art.
Digital Images created in Photoshop, ArcScene, and ArcGIS, 24″x24″, each 2013
The images utilize and are keyed to a color spectrum of the emotions by Robert Plutchik, who theorized how all emotions work together to create wholeness in our selves. From his theory, my own data collected through interactive surveys, and specialized mapping programs, I created this visualization of the collective Austin experience.
