Combining Mapping and Art
The following art projects were made for a graduate class that explored the relationship of maps and art in personal meaningful ways.
I made this image using new contemporary art techniques, combining digital images of a human heart and a map I created taken from Google Earth of tributaries leading out to the ocean on Cape Cod. It is entitled "We are all connected". I find it remarkable how similar the veins in a human are to the tributaries and water of the earth. Both are the lifeblood of the two systems, and both look and function in similar ways. Below are the two original images I started with.
