These images show some of the many migrations humans made in deep time and current time. Some of us stayed in our African homeland and some of us left to populate the world. The diaspora of modern humans, shown as a burst of  A, T, C, and Gs, began about 50,000 years ago.

The first two images are a work on fabric for Professor Charmaine Royal for her office at Duke University.

The next five images are from the “Medical School Hap Map”, commissioned by the Dean of the Medical School for the Mayo building corridor at the University of Minnesota. It depicts the diversity of the student population at the University’s Medical School. The darker shadow map depicts pre-1980 populations. The top map shows the journey of male and female students migrating from all over the world to the University of Minnesota.
