part of the play with the spatial praxis map.
here: firstly, it becomes the surface for some shadows being overlaid. these are purely accidental but of course point towards the surface being both representation and new object again: so the circling and iterating, the building on top and layering can proceed in all sorts of way:
it is a concept map
it is a drawing
it is a methodology
it is a floor plan
it is an instruction, a record, a memory, a construction plan.
>> with these different functionalities, time and space of the map are multiple and not clearly determined
In different sites and different times of day, the map will be different.
When I take the maps down to put them in my luggage, I roll them up (or rather: they revert back to the form that I unfurled them from a few days earlier). I realise that they are new objects and shape them a little, place the camera near or far and include my hand. These are basic, don’t work aesthetically but provide enough of a record to develop from. Well: the first one doesn’t work for the background; the two other ones, more close up work better.
