Map Me (2007)

Map-Me is an interactive event and the resulting artwork a collaborative piece. Each visitor brings a picture or a business card or some other note representing themselves, placing it on the wall of the gallery with pins. They then using wool connect their own note to all the notes of people they know. As the exhibition progresses the walls are filled with representations of individuals while the room has come to live with threads of connection. Referencing online networking platforms such as MySpace and facebook, this work brings virtuality back into reality, making both the act of networking, the connections and the people reappear in real time and space.
