Project Brief:

This poster depicts the scale and uncertainty of the terrain in and around the Grand Canyon— the areas traveled by explorers of the
manifest destiny. Pictured here, is a scene that intentionally feels as if it could trap the explorers. Additionally, at first glance you see a boat going
down the river, but then you see a larger-than-life woman’s shadow up the canyon. The ambiguity piques interest and refers to the twist to the
play which casts non-cisgender people who are female-identifying, and female. This would not be whom you see on the original expedition of all white men.
