Creative mapping with InIVA and RGS
IniVA, the East London based gallery and arts reference library is launching a three year (2007-10) education, events and multimedia initiative exploring the politics, ethics and aesthetics of map-making through the lens of contemporary artistic practice.
This week artists and educators interested in creative mapping met at The Royal Geographical Society to swap notes on their practices and plant seeds for future collaboration. FreqOUT! curator Amy Robins gave a presentation on the work of FreqOUT! and her own practise - see below a film still from Drawing In Time - a map of the sonic activity under Waterloo Bridge, July 2006.
InIVA has created a fantastic blog in which they aim to upload one map a day. Have a look at InIVA Creative Mapping Blog to see how they are doing... or
