Rebecca Krinke Maps Joy and Pain

The University of Minnesota’s UMNews on Rebecca Krinke’s public art installation, Unseen/Seen: The Mapping of Joy and Pain:

On the surface (both literally and figuratively) Rebecca Krinke’s latest public art piece is simply a giant laser-cut map of Minneapolis and St. Paul. But once she added in two types of colored pencils — gold and gray —and let local citizens color in their personal places of joy and pain, it became something much more.
The map has turned into a sociology experiment of sorts and a sounding board for people’s emotions: hope and despair, contentment and anger, love and hate.
