Mapping Reality 2011: This page explores concepts of reality, mapping, memory, framing, drawing and symbols.

Drawing the Line-1:
Paul Klee's quote: Drawing is following the line influenced Shaun Gladwell for his Mundi Mundi desert videos where he rode a motorbike and a video of him was shot from behind; as he followed the white line in the centre of the road. In this video, the white line is the guard rail to stop motorbikes falling off the edge of the mountain. All road signs on the Putty Road relate to the hundred of motorbikes which ride The Loop on weekends, along the Wollemi-Broke-Putty Roads. Wind noise is like white noise; it is repetitive, with a lot of jagged sound waves... you hear this white noise in a fast moving car and in the helmut of a speeding motor bike.

Catch a Falling Star:

When the internet dropped out in the Putty Road mountains, Google Maps and iPad GPS app, generated a Cartesian grid, a sphere and blue ring. In this iPhone video, my hands try to catch the blue sphere and circle, the iPhone map symbols... Saturday 9 July 2011. NASA uses symbols like these spheres, rings and lines, to envision planets like Jupiter (red) and Alien Planets. To see NASA's envisions visit my page Planet Paradiso.

Reality, Mapping, Framing:
How does looking at three screens of the same event, affect our understanding of mapping, direction, landscape, framing, interior/exterior?
- Reality is framed through the vehicle windscreen where we look outside to the road, trees and landscape.
- Symbols are framed on the iPadscreen where we look inside to the drawn map, symbols and information from GPS satellites!
- Memory Map is framed on the GPS device where we look at a drawn map grid with lines of latitude and longitude.
- Reflections are framed onto both screens where we see ghost images of the interior.
- How does framing affect dualities: reality - symbolism | reality - memory | inside - outside

Drawing Memory Map:
When the iPad GPS app. cannot access the internet, it uses memory map... this is like humans... when we can't remember, we make it up from memory, now a map app. does too!!
