This is a group project to explore the functions of the city. Each member is assigned three specific interests to figure out the unique kits of the city.
I choose to focus on the relationship between man and nature (ecology) in the city, and the relationship between man and capitalism. I researched the 25 most common bird species in LA to show the urban ecology kit, and present capitalism with two modes of transportation.
I cut out 25 birds by Photoshop, and then upload them into brush tools and pick different colors for them to fill in the Los Angeles map.
Considering that this is a general city function, I hope to weaken the background definition of LA. I used Procreate to draw a map of a non-existent area as the background, making this image more likely to become any city in the world.
Toll highways are a manifestation of capitalism, and people can pay to enjoy unobstructed highways, time is money, money is time.
I collected a variety of Fastrak Signs images, cut and pasted them on the street scene, and used Photoshop, Illustrator, and Procreate to recreate them. I am imagining whether Fastrak has the original meaning and function if it becomes a necessary or general way of travel.
I merged City of Transit and City of Tolls to produce a more integrated city function. The tolerance of the city is huge, people who do not have a car and those who have a car and are willing to pay to enjoy a spacious road can live in the same city.
