In 1980, psychologist Robert Plutchik published his theory of emotions, to show that all our emotional are relational. 
Our feelings are caused by experiences, which occur within the context of place and community. That gives us the opportunity to map our experiences.

The XYZ Atlas asks why we feel a sense of belonging to a place by mapping experiences and collecting stories that document our highs and lows within a city.

Jen at Texas Trib Fest"As an artist, I create visualizations about ideas. I was trying to understand how to accept all my feelings and experiences, not just the pleasurable ones. I came across psychologist Robert Plutchik's chart of emotions, and after seeing it as a color wheel, I could finally visualize emotional wholeness. Then I started asking how we create attachment to place, starting with where I live."

--Jennifer Chenoweth, Artist

The XYZ Atlas is an interactive public art project. We create art, maps, and activations that affect community health and well-being, urban planning, and cultural tourism with diverse outreach strategies to reach art lovers and underserved communities of all ages. 

We are launching a unique survey in the Bryan & College Station communities.

The final exhibition May - July 2017 will include the anonymous results of the survey, GIS experience maps of the area, artworks, and photographs of our community outreach activities.

We will create a catalog about the project in print and online.

There are amazing opportunities to participate in this project. We invite you to join this unique opportunity to visualize how we experience belonging.

Call for volunteers

Texas RedsLink to sign up for interns and volunteers

Training by Texas Target Communities will take place in late January, and volunteers will attend community events to collect surveys from February - April 2017.
