Mapping Values

 
 

Mapping Values is a computer work that formed a part of a large installation by the artists collective 'Those Environmental Artists'. Commissioned for Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham, London in summer 1997, the piece was a comprehensive and detailed mapping analysis of the park surrounding the house, its history, geography and biology.

The core of the installation was a paper map that allowed users to explore the site and uncover systematic and anecdotal responses to the site, while sound works were also secreted across the park. The computer piece was sited in the gallery itself, serving as an interactive map, giving visitors the chance to explore in more depth the sounds, images and data generated and recorded during the project.
