Exploring Data and Documentary with the Latino Community in Buford Highway

This work of mixed-media scholarship will bring together not only documentary and data visualization but also multiple authors and languages in order to illuminate facets of life and work as experienced by Latinos in a section of the city too often overlooked by Georgia Tech.

Currently, ML and LMC students are working independently to gather promising footage and data sets for the project. The ML students—focused on documentary—are conducting interviews with a range of community members, starting with students at Cross Keys High School. The LMC students—focused on data visualization—are developing “data biographies” that speak to the social lives of data sets that highlight various dimensions of Buford Highway.
