Chronology of Maps:
The history of cartography can be seen as documentation of man’s efforts to order, that, which has no order in an endless quest to stabilize that, which has only flux. Our ability to access the vantage of the stars makes such efforts plausible for modern man and yet our efforts lay in vain.
When the ground we walk upon shifts and then recedes, on what basis can we found stability? Territories once sketched become faltering spatial concepts.
Working with and manipulating the deposit formed on the surface of this new material, as corrosive liquids transform these thin sheets of metal, they oxidize and begin to deteriorate. Uncontrollable by the artist, the transformation of these pieces becomes not only an examination of time, but also commentary on the shifting boundaries and borders of all forms which change as a result of both man’s manipulation and forces beyond our control.
