40 week journey exploring migration in the Americas
The Americas in particular are interesting continents because of their long history of migration and the recent political developments in both South and North America. Whereas most people think of migration as people moving from South to North, most movement actually takes place between neighbouring countries and between different regions within a country. By investigating these movements and visualising them, Via PanAm wants to contribute to a better understanding of migration and the Americas.
The route followed runs from Tierra del Fuego in southern Chile to Prudhoe Bay, northern Alaska. The Pan-American Highway is the primary route, leading Van Lohuizen over more than 25.000 km and past 15 countries.
