i.Detroit – A Human Atlas of an American City

I.Detroit is a research-based exploration of 100 individuals from the City of Detroit. The three-year project was built on the foundation of a six-month nomination process, where a diverse group of Detroiters nominated people from their own communities who represent the very best of service to society and are making significant contributions to Detroit, the region and beyond. 

The project maps these remarkable individuals though photographic portraits, app-based image-activated oral histories and ancestral DNA to create a deeper understanding of the city. Human Atlas projects endeavor to hold a mirror up to society and encourage audiences to question their own roles and responsibilities to their communities, cities and fellow human beings. The work is available as a book, a museum exhibition and in digital formats.
