This print was produced alongside a new Big Jump Press artist’s book, Figure Study. This project is a collaboration between Sarah Bryant of Big Jump Press and David Allen, a biology professor at Middlebury College in Vermont.
Each layered figure represents population data for two geographical regions. Using data from the 2014 mid-year projections of the us Census Bureau’s International Data Base, we created population pyramids for every region on earth and paired them at the peak to create human-like forms.
This print features data from the following regions:
yellow Hong Kong/United States
pink United Kingdom/Australia
blue (over yellow) Maldives/Cambodia
green (over pink) Saint Barthelemy/Venezuela
