111c.  Map as Metaphor3

This is the third panel in a three-part series investigating how the map can be understood as a metaphor, both as material artifact and cultural object as well as an artistic tool. The series was organized by The Center for Book Arts and made possible through a grant by the New York Chapter of the American Painting History Association. Maps and atlases are an integral part of the history of the book as well as a physical and conceptual resource for book arts. This program of three panels features scholars, scientists, and artists who will explore questions about power, information, identity, economics, ecosystems, and culture. 

Panel 3: “The Artist Map: Appropriation and Creation”
Heidi Neilson, artist and co-founder of SP Weather Station.
