Visual Geographies



I’m currently involved in a discussion on visual geographies between Kate Armstrong, Vancouver multi-media artist and scholar and Garnet Hertz, a Canadian artist and scholar based in California for BlackFlash Magazine.

All three artists deal explicitly with contemporary ways of mapping space, or in some cases, a contemporary poetics of space. We’re drawing them together from three very different parts of the world to discuss their newest projects as well as the ideas driving them.
