Peter Dykhuis, Visual Artist

Maps, flags and state symbols abound in Peter Dykhuis's art: 'You Are Here' superimposes a map of Halifax on envelopes; 'Radar Paintings' uses airport radar images; 'World View: The G7 Suite' encloses maps from each country within their respective flags. Dykhuis wrote to say this about his site: 'This site is an overview of artwork that explores the graphic, social and political contexts of maps and map-making in contemporary culture. Of major interest is the overlap between fixed, analog, paper-based maps and the fluid domain of digital mapping courtesy of satellite systems and 24/7 computer-based viewing.'
