Using immigration data and maps from the Internet, I projected maps representing immigration settlement patterns onto paper and stamped the names of the country of origin onto the paper using a rubber stamp. England, Germany, Ireland, Poland, and Russia to name a few. The work took about 6 hours to complete and the "map" revealed itself over time.

The current immigration debate puzzles me. Unless you're Native, you come from immigrants.
