Next in our exciting line-up of mapping projects is a commission with artist/cartographer Jeremy Wood. Jeremy uses GPS drawing to digitally trace his daily movements and journeys, creating beautifully expressive works of art.
The Museum already has one of Jeremy’s works in its collection – My Ghost – in which his journeys throughout London from 2008-2009 are tracked to reveal a personal cartography. The Museum’s commission will result in a new GPS map of London, to be displayed for the first time in our Mind the Map exhibition.
When I met with Jeremy earlier this year he was busy cycling the length of the Thames, mapping his route along the way in order to create the foundations for his new artwork.
We won’t be revealing the final artwork until next year’s exhibition, however look out for further posts as the work progresses.
