{The Height of Happiness: topographical map of joy for Portland, OR}
Joyography aimed to re-geographize the city of Portland via the lens of
joy. Residents and visitors alike were surveyed to determine the
locations of their favorite places. The more people enjoy a particular
location, the higher the place will appear on the newly imagined map
of the city. By the end of the conference, an alternate map of
Portland will be rendered, the topography of which is based entirely
on its population’s aggregate happiness.
