Visual Scavenger Hunt
The goal of the Visual Scavenger Hunt is to document the different (and often quite similar) visual landscapes people around the world encounter daily. Often we do not notice how much our communities are shaped by various forms of visual communication. Posters, signs, advertisements, paintings, graffiti, billboards, flyers, license plates, trash—all become integrated into the environment around us.
