This work acknowledges the movement created by the influx of people who migrate from one place to another. It also directs our attention to the haunting traces they leave behind. Whether escaping from persecution or from environmental factors; seeking employment or educational opportunities; people are constantly being displaced and searching for a new place to call home. New York city has been a port of entry since the 1880’s and has accepted hundreds of millions of immigrants ever since.

The different pieces that make the map of Manhattan follow the 2011 Census’s color coding assigned to the different races and ethnicities that inhabit the city.
