This morning when I left my house to go to the corner store to pick up my morning beverage, my housemate was listening to the Washington, DC NPR affiliate station, WAMU. About 10 minutes later, when I returned home, my housemate said with a big smile, “You were just mentioned on the radio.” I went up to my room, was able to find the segment on-line, and downloaded the MP3.

I hope you can make it!
Adding a radical new dimension to traditional cartography, Nikolas Schiller: Geospatial Art
disrupts the singular geopolitical viewpoint and in its place reveals infinite paths and perspectives of specific places at specific times in history. Experimenting with new methods of projecting geospatial information in a three-dimensional environment, Nikolas Schiller creates these unique maps out of public domain orthophotography. He has re-projected much of urban America, from downtown central business districts to state capitals to highway intersections to national monuments, and now, Georgetown.
The Old Print Gallery, a destination for map enthusiasts since 1971, invites you to view Nikolas Schiller’s postmodern cartography amidst the gallery’s collection of maps dating from the seventeenth century to the present. Nikolas Schiller: Geospatial Art is on view September 17 through November 13, 2010. All are welcome to attend the both the opening reception on September 17 from 5 to 8 pm and Nikolas Schiller’s artist talk on October 15 from 6 to 8 pm.
