Mary Pat McGuire, an assistant professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture, has been mapping the sand deposits underneath Chicago to make better use of the city's geology and the natural drainage systems that can more efficiently manage storm water than human-built structures. Uncovering the environmental systems that urbanization has hidden is the ongoing work of her research studio Water Lab.
Tracing You by Ben Grosser, who is a professor in the School of Art and Design and a researcher at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, delivers snapshots of a visitor's whereabouts when they access the project's website. Behind the scenes a program captures the geolocation associated with the IP address and finds related online resources to display that will represent the viewpoint of each user. The images are posted on the site for others to see, and Grosser then tracks the responses to the results and people's ideas about visibility and surveillance.
