Artist's Statement

Creating a book was antithetical to the concept of my thesis — an exploration of injecting life and motion into maps — it was nevertheless still a requirement by my graduate program. How do you present a dynamic, digital project in the form of a book? Confronted by this dynamic dilemma, I decided to take a different approach. Instead of Dynamic Cartography: The Book, which would have sucked the life and the point out of the project, I chose to step back and tell a meta-narrative about the process of making the project. Michael Makes Maps is that story.
