Puzzled (and painted) Block Print where each rope is colored according to race demographics in Philadelphia and then given properties/rules for how they each interact with ropes of other colors based on individual random number generation according to national homophily statistics (likelihood of interracial friendships). Red lines represent systemic barriers, ghost circles highlight moments of race avoidance, colored squares are random ethnographic focal points.
