Maps & Mapping

Jon Adams is fellow Art Space artist from Portsmouth and amongst other things he is doing a project based on mapping and Geology and it was he that inspired a mini series of diversions of my own. When we use the word map we often think of cartography but that’s another story entirely. What follows is really a data map or perhaps a distraction map because that’s what this one is. On the 30.6.12 I was in my studio carving out a linocut block that I was going to subsequently make a print from. I got a little distracted by one thing and another and began to list the time and what I was doing.
