Photocartographies: Exhibit in LA




Photocartographies: Tattered Fragments of the Map


At the g727 gallery, Los Angeles, California, May 16 - July 3, 2009.
Photography and cartography are entwined in similar processes of subject orientation that structure our experience of social, environmental and virtual landscapes. A map is not a representation so much as a system of propositions. This project reveals mapping itself as a generative process of knowledge creation, a liberatory method for re-imagining and re-imaging our world, its built and natural environments, and the relationship between space and place.

In other words. Maps in art is cool...

In general, as you know, I loves the maps in art. Plus, these photomosaics have kind of a quilty thing going on. In other words, I should flat out LOVE 'em. But somehow, they don't quite do anything for me. Strange.
