Drawings 2009: Carnivore



The drawings that make  the series “carnivore” generated out of an inquiry into mapping processes and systems.They are mental maps that attempt to diagram the experiential qualities of space and a sense of place. They reference the paths, networks, nodes and hubs of both the digital and urban landscapes. They reflect on the technologically mediated spaces that we inhabit, and interact with such as working with software, using a database, digital tracking and navigating the Web. Carnivore was a system that was designed in 1997 to monitor email and electronic communications.
