HISTORY OF ART SERIES: Map as Metaphor, Panel 2
March 25, 2016, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Panel 2: “The Eco-Techno Map: Data and Online Initiatives”
This is the second panel in a three-part series investigating how the map can be understood as a metaphor, both as material artifact and cultural object as well as an artistic tool. The series is organized by the Center for Book Arts and made possible through a grant by the New York Chapter of the American Printing History Association..
Maps and atlases are an integral part of the history of the book as well as a physical and conceptual resource of book arts. This program of three panels features scholars, scientists, and artists who will explore questions about power, information, identity, economics, ecosystems, and culture.
Our second panel focuses on professionals and technologists working with maps, responding to the inclusion, omission, or loss of information, and projecting past data into new presentations.
