For this project I decided to look at something related to my Teenie Harris Research.
Jason Salavon focuses his artistic practice around visual averages and overlays. Because he chooses datasets with high similarity, by layering all the images together you can pull out key insights about the situations depicted in the photographs. In the top image, you can get a sense of the shapes that come through in Chicago’s inner loop, very tall and long buildings. In the Santa photo, you notice that many of the children sit on the same leg and are very small, probably all less than 6 years old. I might end up trying this in my visual annotations of the Teenie Harris archive.
