Dayton Triangle is part of the "Facing Dayton: Visualizing Neighborhood Narratives" project. This project tells the tales of Dayton citizens from different neighborhoods in visually effective ways. This 2-sided digitally printed poster visualizes the voice of Mama Nozipo who is a native of Dayton View Triangle Neighborhood in Dayton, Ohio. The use of ink wash techniques conveys the overall mood of the storyteller who watched neighborhood houses continually torn down and people coming and going. The visual mood of dark nostalgia and a dream-like state, with the use of the typography gives this poster a powerful presence in visual culture. The back of the piece includes an ancillary text from Charlotte Reeve Conover's "Dayton Ohio: An Intimate History."
