A disturbing view of tangled edges and crooked lines define and preserve power for the powerful while deliberately denying it to others. This map of the United States bleeds pink where minority communities are segregated by lines, their voices engulfed by a din of greed. Today, politically drawn boundaries decide elections but they also support unmerited power. Areas of yellow on the map identify the location of federal and state prisons, islands of people counted in the census who cannot vote. Out of sight, out of mind.
