The animated short Ordinating an Abscissa
What is the relationship between social and natural space? Through what ways do we both entangle and disentangle our perceptions of the physical world from the subjective self? By looking at the cartographic border, this work presupposes the essential link between the flow of experience and the frame of representation. This work attempts to foreground how the navigation of space and the representation of space are intrinsically tethered.
