Down the Urban Rabbit Hole
To the right, you’re looking at a t-shirt that maps the wearer’s defining lifetime experiences, like a very analog version of geotagging. This is “My Urban Rabbit Hole,” a project by youth culture journalist and urban anthropologist Samina Virani. Participants receive a t-shirt pre-silk screened with a map of an urban local (currently just lower Manhattan, with plans to add other cities in the near future). Individuals then choose five points on the map that represent locations where they’ve had a seminal moment, and affix a permanent red paint stamp and a wax seal finish.
