CARTOGRAPHY EXPERIMENTS

ongoing series (2016 - current)

This ongoing series is comprised of polished experiments - in the studio and in public spaces - that explore the seed of an idea and new methods of making. They are not finished products, rather, starting points for larger scale works. I started this series to explore and expand upon existing forms of cartography while taking the time and space to play with materials and invent new ways of making.

I am deeply curious about cartography. What is a map? How might mapping [as a framework] illuminate a concept or story in different ways, become a catalyst for experience instead of just a utilitarian static entity? How might a map be a dynamic representation of elements in space & place instead of a singular "objective" interpretation?


THE LINE IS NOT THE TERRITORY

2017

"The Line Is Not The Territory" is a shadow map using light and sculpted fabric forms to explore the illusive and malleable qualities of cartographic boundaries.

 

CHOREOGRAPHY SCORE

The performers each listened to a pre-recorded script of light movements on an ipod with headphones, played in sync to create the performance duet.
