Mapping the High Line

MFA Visual Narrative students map and visualize the High Line. Using site-specific research they have created a group atlas, combining drawn, digital, and interactive work to tell stories of the park, its visitors, and the city surrounding it. Together these maps highlight new perspectives and lenses through which the park could be viewed, navigated, or imagined.

Presented by MFA Visual Narrative at the School of Visual Arts. Curated by Tim Szetela.
