Over the course of five days, I walked the shorelines depicted on a survey map of the Orkney Islands in Scotland in order to explore first-hand the dynamism, depth, and infinite immeasurableness of the spaces depicted by what we perceive as a definitive, single line on the survey map. I documented details of the spaces using a magnifying glass and macro lens, then translated the macro-images into drawings using a digital pen. The individual drawings became the alphabet or vernacular to recreate the experiential map of each day’s walk. By replacing the Cartesian equations used in survey mapping with an experiential map vocabulary, each drawing reveals the spirit of the Orkney shoreline at a particular moment in time.
