Maps: Part 1

A list about maps:

• They are an integral part of my process and have always interested me since I was a kid (rarely is there an instance where one is not pinned to my wall).

• My interest in globes directly stems from my infatuation with maps.

• If I were to turn in a proposal for a project rather than drawings or sketches, I'd make a map.

• Maps that lead to nowhere or maps that say nothing are as fascinating as those that are functional.

• Maps are a key component in this summer's VB project (coming soon).
