Her current ongoing project, Folded Map, visually investigates disparities among Chicago residents while bringing them together to have a conversation. She transformed this project into an advocacy and policy-influencing tool that invites audiences to open a dialogue and question how we are all socially impacted by racial and institutional conditions that segregate the city.
