Hope Island/Natural Spaces

Diana sent us these two watercolors from a series of works exploring visual connections between the islands of Narragansett Bay. She writes that she became fascinated with "the natural cycles of the bay, the islands large and small that dot the bay, and the history flowing in, around, and through." As an artist she explores, "the layering of systems, looking for the boundaries of multiplicities and disjunctions with each layer building and unbuilding on the previous."

Donut Hole

Courtney writes, "This is a map drawn by my friend Lindsay Foley. She spent the summer working on a boat in Newport, RI and was persuading us to go there on a day trip from Boston. The donut hole is where she lived (not to scale). Needless to say, her map was all the convincing we needed, and we had a great time there!"

The Show Was Here

Maps 21-26 were submitted to the HDMA by lola dam sorrow via a ".rar" file uploaded to Sendspace. The collection of maps is from a series called Maps for Girls which lola hopes to make into a zine someday. These intriguing personal stories speak better for themselves so I will stop typing now.
