Beyond English—Information Graphics
As part of the Sticks + Stones project, we were asked to create information graphics to visually explain some aspect of culture, migration, or immigration. I chose to focus on language, as it is an important means of communication that has the power to both connect and divide people. Using statistics from mla.org, I started with a map of the United States and focused on foreign languages spoken in each state, which painted a picture of various cultural regions across the country. I then created two more maps, which narrowed to the Western US and finally to my home state, Utah.
