Dotted Lines

Karen created these maps to record her daily journeys. She became fascinated by the shapes and patterns we create with our wandering. In her system, the dotted lines symbolize walking while regular lines indicate travel by bus or car. Between the lines are colors and textures. Many of the textures are drawn by placing her pen on a piece of paper and letting the movement of the car jerk her hand around. The lines created by this process haphazardly document the traveling vehicle.
