Counter Cartographies (Collaboration with Hoang Pham)

Mixed-media installation at The Front, New Orleans, LA, USA, 2010-2011

Rather than presenting geographic truths, Counter Cartographies blurs delineation. In this ongoing series of drawings, collages, and digital images, relationships between nations and territories are reconfigured into alternative worldviews. Through this transformative process, physical and ideological proximities begin to shift. In our globalized world, the distance between nations continues to lose significance yet divisions pertaining to culture, conflict, economics and ecology remain. Whether negating contested boundaries, introducing unlikely neighbors, or hinting towards global concerns; the works comprising Counter Cartographies blend fact and fiction within an open-ended narrative structure.
