Archipelago (Cityspace #137)

Piece description from the artist

I started this imaginary map drawing by outlining a shore shape with islands and thin bridges in water-soluble pencil on watercolor paper. I then drew the pigment out using watercolor wash to form the watery texture, and drew in roads in varying sizes traversing the islands. I placed houses predominantly along the largest roads, thinking about personal geographies and the way that in our mental maps, we are often aware only of the buildings and structures that we need to get around our cities. In that way, the map is more of a vignette of an individual experience than an impartial, comprehensive map of a city.
