Invisible Bridge is a data-based map that indicates all restaurants within two blocks of Union Square. By revealing and visualizing two scales of distance, New York City distance and real geographical distance, the audience can realize that we are surrounded by so many cultures from all over the world and also encourage them to explore this complex system of food and immigration culture. Ultimately, it will be built as a wayfinding signage in an abstract sculptural form to assist people with finding less-apparent cultural integration in the area.
