The Orkney Series drawings poetically reminds us that all maps are subjective, their illusion of truth being dependent on the choice of information selected and omitted by the mapmaker. Over the course of five days, the artist 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. She documented details of the spaces using a magnifying glass and macro lens, translating the images into drawings that then became the vernacular for 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.
