"A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that the patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face." --Jorges Luis Borges

Who is making new maps? Modern cartography is a sterile and scientific process resulting in ubiquitous maps of the world. Street maps and now even our own houses can be viewed on home computers as the images are beamed back to us from space. Gone are the maps of old that illustrated not only the known world, but also the unknown and imagined world. Winds were illustrated around their borders along with strange mythical creatures to show that there may be danger in these parts.

“These works are new abstract maps of our world for the new millennium. They are an attempt to illustrate through abstraction how we look at our world now with fractured images and composite photography, through a new world we call cyberspace.” – Michael Ferriss

Michael's music project Shima will also be featured as part of this exhibition.
