for the past several years i have been working on a series of cartographic installations comprised of layers of hand cut paper, light and shadow. these constructions depict aspects of the world which we cannot normally see; a microscopic organism, an image from the depths of our interior anatomy, a labyrinth of pipes and systems buried beneath us or the land we live on as it was 200 years before. i am interested in how these inaccessible places are transformed once they are flattened into two dimensions and mapped out, and how the visualization of information, a system, landscape or history, creates an abstraction that can be simultaneously informative and ambiguous.
