 Cartography is the study of map making and the practice of crafting representations of the earth upon a flat surface. Many maps are 2D, geometrically accurate, and are representations of 3D space. Maps are also designed by designers today, and are works of art by themselves, and need to be visually pleasing in order to convey the information successfully. Moreover, celestial maps define the earth.

 

 In this exhibition, students were encouraged to reflect the notions of a map(s), utilize it in an artwork, and further define an existing object by collaborating with a “silent” designer by giving new birth to this surface. This project follows the notion of re-thinking the surface of traditional art making, and students were encouraged to combine various media as well as collage.
