I live in Manhattan and I’ve been curating a gallery show of maps of Manhattan. I put together a map myself.
I wanted to explore the idea that maps are deeply personal – a city block means different things to different people. One person identifies it with the corner store, another with a yoga class. This is my version of Greenwich Village in NYC. And yes, it includes a flattened mouse and a micro-pig (true story).
This was for the exhibition Mapping the Big Apple: Visions of New York, at the SoHo Digital Art Gallery.
