Distance and common desires

lines from an unspecified here to home

Detail (home)

Distance and Common Desires is a series of prints created through analysis of submissions to Destinations. I filtered people’s responses to the questions “Where do you want to go?” and “Why do you want to go there?” to find clusters of similar desires. The three groups presented here are people traveling to go home, those who want to see their lovers, and those traveling for food.

Each print shows the distance between people and their desires, the paths they would follow to reach them, and the relative direction to their desired places. They present a macro view of travel within common narratives of desire.
