Modern humans are pretty good at getting from point A to point B, especially with our phones to tell us where to go and how to get there. But we are here. Where’s that?
Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to get the bigger picture; to step back and look at things in context. This series of maps, constructed from aluminum cans and carpet tacks, firmly anchors the viewer in the universe, the Milky Way Galaxy, the solar system, and on earth, and hones in on our very real location amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s a tourist guide, an explorer’s tool, an evacuation plan; a study of civil engineering, geography, astrophysics and the boundaries of human intelligence. But more than anything, it’s a reminder that regardless of where we’re going or where we’re coming from, we are always here.
This exhibition will be on display daily at the SugarCube Building at 1555 Blake St.
