ALBUQUERQUE

Turn Left at Albuquerque New Mexico, UNM Art Gallery 2005

Drawing on the work of the Situationists, this project involved exploring diverse and personal approaches to ‘mapping’, challenging the reductive propensity of conventional architectural representation and master planning. The development of urban design work which utilizes everyday idiosyncrasies of the urban fabric is at the core of my research and memorial making practice. The subsequent exhibition was a somewhat playful look at a very short stay in a very richly textured place, with lessons in self-consciousness applicable to the production of maps in general, and with subsequent implications for the production of urban and spatial design proposals.

 Albuquerque, a city unfamiliar to me, was documented. The maps acknowledged multiple, simultaneous, shifting and even contradictory experiences.
