Information Graphics—Beyond English
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.
