Explore the representation of collective experiences and shared perceptions through mapping.

This talk looks at the role that time, emotions, sensory inputs, and memory play in shaping these changing perceptions. This short presentation will reveal the mapping process and thinking behind these mapping prototypes. The crossover between scientific cartography and artistic expression will be discussed, as we appreciate how these different disciplines can be engaged to shape new approaches to cartography and reveal the map’s ability to impart emotion and evoke a sense of place.
