I went to the Catholic University campus about 2 years ago and fell in love with the Basilica. I believe the dome is mosaiced. :-)

Harvard Quilt - NE by Nikolas Schiller

A friend of mine that I have been spending a lot of time with lately graduated from Harvard a few years ago. When I told her that I was going to make a map of Harvard she showed me which dorm she lived in. When I set up the tessellation I tried my best to place her dorm, the Dunster House, near the seam on the NE & NW tessellations. The SE & SW tessellations placed her dorm on the edges of the tessellation, so I haven’t got around to making those two maps yet, but I plan on it.

One of my favorite aspects of my map making activities is seeing how the final product turns out. Where will the seams line up? What buildings will get reflected along a line of symmetry? What part of the map will be the most beautiful? Will I find a random reflection? etc. etc. It turns out that this map and the following map, have her former dorm placed beautifully. I also broke away from the standard 2 / 3 / 4 seamed maps, and made 6 seamed map, and I must say that I very happy with how this map turned out. Check the details to see what I’m talking about!

Star of the George Washington University

: rendered at 10,000 X 7,500 :

So I have made quite a few quilt renderings lately. To be honest, these multi-planar maps are my favorite to make, and because of this, I tend to make more them compared to the rest of the projections I’ve worked on.

Beginning with this rendering, I am going to relate the star of to education (be the star of your school!), and the next few will be dedicated to schools. Up next is Woodson High School in Washington, DC and following that will be my alma mater, Marquette High School. Ideally, I’d like to donate prints of these to the schools.

Marquette High School Quilt

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

In the last two weeks I’ve reconnected with about 10 different folks I knew back in high school. To celebrate this, and to actually follow through with one of my old ideas, I made a rendering for my high school in Clarkson Valley, MissouriMarquette High School. Located about 22 miles from downtown Saint Louis, in the affluent West County, this public high school cost over 20 million dollars to construct and in less than 10 years it was expanded to hold more students. There were trailers placed in the front of the school for a few years and the year after I graduated in 1999, they finished the expansion and removed the trailers. The aerial photograph used was taken by the USGS in March of 2002, and if you look closely, the sidewalk in front of the school is still visible where the trailers used to be.

I could probably go on & on about aboutt this rendering, filling in every detail of the complex mental map I have, but I won’t. If I do another rendering, I’ll be sure to add another story or two about that place, space, and time.

For Christmas, I’d like to print up a copy of this rendering and donate it to the school….
