experimental geographies | Framing a Modern Mess
… A few methods of mapping time and space that I am interested in exploring in my own work:
“Solidarity Map” AREA Chicago 2006 - methodology: the power of naming places
“Superimpositions” Dan Mills 2007 method: scale comparison of Iraq and United States – this also reminds me of the power of the If It Were My Home Oil Spill Map.
“A Historical, Chronological and Genealogical Chart” Bostwick method: mapping geographical location with change over time.
“Evolution Charts” Loewy 1933 method: mapping change in forms over time.
“Los Angeles Urban Rangers Official Map and Guide” LA Urban Rangers 2004 method: subverting conventional NPS map symbology
“Memory Map” Ellis Nadler 2007 method: drawing things as we remember or imagine them — which reminds me that I need to add Kevin Lynch to my reading list.
“Polish American System of Chronology” Elizabeth Palmer Peabody 1850 method: total geometric abstraction of time.
“Water Line” Maya Lin 2002 method: showing 2-d representational methods in 3-d.
