Mandela, Massachusetts: Design Futures for a Proposed City

October 2020 - Present.
Roxbury, Massachusetts.
QGIS, Illustrator, Photoshop and Hand Drawing.





An ongoing interactive public art project on the 1980s proposed city of Mandela, Massachusetts, which would have been a result of Black neighborhoods in Boston re-incorporating to form their own city. The project includes posters, postcards and stickers about Mandela that I distributed across the city that also link to a visioning survey. This piece is a speculative tourist map and postcard of “what could have been”.
