Diagrams of Intersecting Paths

This piece is based on the story of Chad Chadwick, a production artist now residing in Austin, TX. He had resettled in New Orleans where he had grown up and his girlfriend had only recently moved from Atlanta to join him before the hurricane. I was intrigued at the idea of this couple having separate paths that were finally converging, only to be 'intersected' by the path of Katrina.

The diagram is based off of several mapping systems. The first was a crude US state map with segmented lines representing borders and solid lines representing the coast. The second was a map of Katrina's progress, color coded for intensity, The last overlay is a map of the couple's progress, based on a map of Lewis & Clark's travels.
