From Here To There (Detail)
, 2012








               The artist walked in the city, by getting directions from other people













From Here to There (Manhattan)

2012 - ongoing
Various pens and paper, map pins
Dimensions variable  

A map of Manhattan composed of hand-drawn maps by various pedestrians whom I asked for directions. I have collected and aggregated together small individual maps provided by strangers that constitute a contiguous map of the island of Manhattan.

Pretending to be a tourist by wearing a souvenir cap and carrying a shopping bag of Century 21, a major tourist shopping place, I ask various New York pedestrians to draw a map to direct me to another location. I connect and place these small maps based on actual geography in order to make them function as parts of a larger map.

質問とペン、いろいろな紙

道を尋ねる過程で人々に描いてもらった地図をつなぎ合わせて作る、マンハッタンという都市の地図。
