Studio Sutherl&

2021, UK, Art

Through photographic portraits, app-based image-activated oral histories and ancestral DNA i.Detroit–a ‘human atlas of an American city’– brings to the fore latent information in a compelling material and digital hybrid project, a cross-disciplinary collaboration between and Studio Sutherl& and Marcus Lyon. Part science, part art, i.Detroit explores individual and collective identity. This is beautifully expressed by the logo constructed series of individual ‘i’ brought together to reveal, within the centre and using negative space, a single star.
