NAME RANK & NUMBER

Putting together some new cards before I give a talk at the North American Cartographic & Information Society annual conference later this month; name, rank and the numbers that keep us in line, facilitate connections and remind us of other voices. Like what I do :: buy me some beans !

But What About the Place
Have you been to the place itSelf? Making a map is about place, and place is something that is both other than, but also ourself - an interwoven and dynamic relationship. Making should involve a conscious exploration with this otherness before a mark is made; with emptiness of mind and intent. 'I wake to sleep, and . . . learn by mapping where I stop to map.' Our mark-mapping presents the opportunity of a moral center, no left or right, only the voice of the Place. You have to be on the side of the Place, the whole interwoven inclusiveness within which we live.
