University of Southern California Quilt no.2 by Nikolas Schiller

Read my brief comments about USC in my previous entry.

Of note, is that after posting the last map I looked at the number of maps I’ve made of Los Angeles and realized that I have enough for a 2008 Calendar! I will definitely put one together in time for this Christmas season. And after even further review, I actually have enough maps for a series of different calendars- DC, California, Texas, various universities, and fractals. :-)

These two maps of the University of Southern California will be the last of Los Angeles for a bit. I am surprised by the amount of maps I have made of this sprawling city! Moreover, I see myself remapping much of the city in the not-so-distant future. There is a lot of places here left to discover. As for USC, I think it’s quite interesting how condensed the University Park Campus is. I thought GWU’s urban location was slighly cramped, but this university was able to fit a lot into a small area.

Columbine Quilt
|| 4/20/2007 || 8:18 am || Comments Off on Columbine Quilt || ||

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Today is the 8 year anniversary of the tragedy at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. With what happened this week at Virginia Tech I felt that this map would be a way to honor those who passed away.

To this day I still remember sitting in math class watching it all unfold on TV in 1999. I remember seeing a friend of mine, who’s name I cannot recall, being interviewed on television. I had 10 friends from summer camp who were attending Columbine, but thankfully none were hurt.

Also related, but created unintentionally, are my two maps of Oklahoma City, where I inadvertently placed the Oklahoma City Memorial at the center of the maps.

University of South Florida Quilt with Clouds
|| 8/27/2006 || 11:16 pm || Comments Off on University of South Florida Quilt with Clouds || ||

: rendered at 9,000 X 6,000 :

I’ve only made one other map with clouds. Yet in that map the clouds did not take on any extra meaning beyond the subtle religious commentary on behalf of the Mormon Church. Yet this map relates to a conversation I had with my sister when she moved to Tampa Florida to teach at the University of South Florida. I asked “Are you prepared for a hurricane?” and her answer was what I expected, “Not yet.” The synthetic clouds in this map represent her likelihood of her experiencing a hurricane while living in Florida. I was unable to make the clouds look like a hurricane per se, but I was able to make them symmetrical, which aesthetically I like better. Regardless, I am worried about a major hurricane hitting Tampa and my sister being in the middle of it. Ironically, my two sisters & I all live in geographic locations that have some level of risk to them: one sister lives in San Francisco (earthquake), the other sister lives in Tampa (hurricane), and I live in Washington, DC (terrorism). Good thing my mom still lives in the midwest…

This rendering took 27 hours to complete, and it’s only half the normal size I usually make my maps. I originally tried to make it at the normal size(216 megapixels), but after 5 minutes and only 5 lines rendered, I decided to cancel the rendering and make it only half size. The reason for the extra rendering time is the nature of how the clouds are made. The depth of each ray of light that hits the clouds has to be determined, which slows down the entire rendering considerably.

This map was made for my sister. She recently joined the faculty at the University of South Florida and will be teaching art history. I am so proud of her! I hope to print this out for her and give it to her for Christmas. I’d love to have it hanging in her office…

Notice how this one isn’t completely symmetrical? Well, in that regards, it was a total mistake! Normally I just scrap the ones that I am not happy with, but I decided to keep this one to simply thrown in some flair to this series.
