Maps as Art – Comment to CBC Hamilton Article on Professor Peace

Elgin Street

Downtown

I agree with Professor Peace, maps do enable you to visualize things and give you context.  As a print artist, I like using map conventions to explore personal histories and linking them to urban landscapes.  My family has worked or lived in Hamilton for over one hundred years. Creating maps give me a way to explore how landscape, history and the individual are connected.
