Vanishing Point: Uncovering Invisible Boundaries, Rare Maps, and Systems of Thought

Share this

Categories:


Vanishing Point: Uncovering Invisible Boundaries, Rare Maps, and Systems of Thought strives to bridge the gap between cartographic documentation and artistic practice.  Maps are capable of facilitating and observing larger concepts than mere geography, such as: the orientation of oneself in the world, the existence of social boundaries, and the relationship between space, time, and change in respect to specific locations.


Maps also present a level of disconnect between reality and the printed page.  Oftentimes, maps distort the actual objects they are trying to represent. This detachment between truth and representation provides a dialogue that runs parallel to much discourse about art itself.  This idea also seems to grapple with the innate desire for us to organize, categorize, replicate and document our surroundings.


By showcasing these visual depictions of systems and processes, pictorial evidence of social, biological, physical and even psychological orientations become viewable in a new way.

Venue ( Address ):
