Mercator: Distortions and Projections in Discovery
15-17 October 2019
Triangle Space Gallery, Chelsea College of Art, SW1P 4JU
This show was a collaboration with performance and discussion by 2018/2019 first-year Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon PhD students meditating on the legacy and metaphor of the Mercator projection world map. The show considers how this familiar yet distorted image of the world has come to contextualise spatial awareness, perception and objectivity, as well as intellectual and tangible exploration.
