2 Tone DC Outline Tile
|| 6/12/2006 || 11:51 am || Comments Off on 2 Tone DC Outline Tile || ||

I can’t shake the tessellation fascination! I tessellated the DC outline and printed up about 10 tiles in two different sizes (gotta show scale right!). It almost looks like a face when rotated…



Meet SloMo the Statehood Snail
|| 6/11/2006 || 10:44 am || Comments Off on Meet SloMo the Statehood Snail || ||

I am really happy with how this turned out. I took the DC outline and placed it over the Photoshop preset shape of a snail. The shelless snail now carries the weight of city so great they won’t let it be a state. I added my synthetic signature of ®’s as the Statehood Snails’ eyes. I’ve printed up about 15 these little buggers. When I put them up I want to use some chalk to show the snail’s trail up to the location (lampost) it stopped at. This will add a cute dimension to SloMo’s style.

2 Tone Stencils of Washington, DC
|| 6/10/2006 || 11:34 pm || Comments Off on 2 Tone Stencils of Washington, DC || ||

So I’ve been on a kick lately with making stencils. I’m not making the spray paint style of stencils (although I could) rather I’ve been making ones specifically designed for wheatpasting. I’m keeping the cartographic theme alive in these stencils by using the DC outline that I acquired for the DC GIS and adding new elements.

My first is the “Statehood North Star”

I’ve printed up about 10 of these and cut them out….

In hindsight, I wish I would have placed it farther up the block on a street sign that wasn’t leaning!

You Are Here #1
|| 6/5/2006 || 10:27 pm || Comments Off on You Are Here #1 || ||

Location: Corner of T & 14th St., NW, Washington, DC
Duration: Taken down on 06/28/07

So I read about “Hitchhikers” last week and was inspired to make my own. I took a piece of scrap wood I found on the street and glued a tessellated aerial photograph of the exact in which it is hanging. Within the photograph there are two arrows pointing to the exact same location but only one is the geographically correct location. This creates a cartographical paradox of being at two places at once, which we all know is impossible. Or is it?

I am excited about challenging the actual definition of what defines a street map. Is it a map of streets that you use when driving? Or a map seen while walking down the street? Or a way to get lost?
