dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to expose some of the key components that drove the creation and conceptualization of Mappings by contextualizing the work in four ways. Chapter One will explore how a number of influential site- specific works use space as a medium for communication. This will function as a preface to Chapter Two, which will analyze how Mappings uses physical space to expose an autobiographical composition about memory and decay. Chapter Three will focus on the technical aspects of the installation, and finally, a brief conclusion will reflect on the work and clue towards future development.
dc.description.abstractMappings is an interactive wall-drawing installation that was on display in the West Hall Gallery of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on the tenth, eleventh, and thirteenth of April, 2015. The piece is visually composed of an incomplete trail map of Mount Greylock State Park traced directly onto the wall in grease pencil. The State Park map serves as a spacial framework for over fifty field recordings that can be activated and navigated through touch.
