THE GOOGLE MAPS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM
What/who inspired the work?
This maps was inspired by the Robert Filliou's "Galerie légitime" happening in Paris, in 1964.
What do you hope its viewers will feel/think?
I hope viewers understand this concept: "walking and mapping: the artists as cartographers." I also hope they look at this map how it shows the path of my future journey on foot. I'm calculating how long will it take to go from Paris to Brussels, then cross France and go back to Barcelona. This will be my "pilgrimage" to purify my sins and go to the heaven. Everything will be recorded with my iPhone and published on YouTube. And of course, I will take my exhibition urn and make a show for an artist.
Why did you choose the medium, subject matter, style?
I chose these digital maps to updated the Filliou's work and bring the same idea to the 21st century.
