You Are Here

Made by Christopher Cannon

You Are Here tells the story of immigration to the United States through a shared public interface that utilizes collaborative stories and user-generated data. User's personal narratives are placed within the larger context of history. Taking advantage of the long wait in line for the Liberty & Ellis Island ferries, users can download the companion app and submit some personal information about their place of origin and life travels. When they arrive on the island, their info is visualized on a large touch-screen display that encourages interactions between strangers as well as showing historical stories of immigration.
