Cartography in Contemporary Art

Stefana McClure, Map of the World (Central Europe), 2006, cut paper, 22\If you plan to be in Cincinnati, OH (USA) this summer, you may want to stop by the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) which curates an exhibit entitled: “Uncoordinated: Mapping Cartography in Contemporary Art.” Denis Wood was invitated to give a lecture in the context of this exhibit on June 9, 2008 (too late!). His ideas and persectives have definitely influenced this project as illustrated by the following statement from the web site of the CAC:

This exhibition addresses the subjective nature of mapping, how we locate ourselves in consideration of changing boundaries and territories, and how we give visual form to boundaries, territories and land masses. Artists in this exhibition confront the politics of naming of places, cartographic attacks on ethnic sensitivity, maps as evidence in boundary disputes, extension of terrestrial boundaries into nautical masses, and maps as scientific and political voice.

I'm GIS Analyst (geographic information systems)

by TeabaggeryForTwo

I do a lot of collection, creation, management, processing, analysis, and graphical representation (cartography) of spatial data relating to all kinds of projects -- infrastructure, public health/safety, environment, and more. It's a very narrow niche, and I have no interest in information technology per se... I'm more of a geographer than a techie person. The problem with GIS is that in order to "progress" past a certain point (the point that I'm at) it's generally necessary to become a programmer and/or code monkey of some sort -- totally not up my alley.
