Maps, Networks, Arteries

Allison Katz’ poster for ‘Artery’ which

includes maps of road junctions and of the

Nottingham Caves was the starting point

for us to create artworks using maps.

We made a collaborative artwork in the

gallery by cutting up a Nottingham A-Z and

creating a collage with it.

In the studio we drew over the roads and

lines on Ordnance Survey maps, using

carbon paper to transfer our marks onto

paper. We then added colour to these

drawings.

Seeing the paths as arteries and finding

ways though places, ways to be guided

was exciting. We started to notice shapes

within our map artworks e.g. a garden

became a fish and a lake became a Loch

Ness monster.

‘‘It was totally unpredictable as you

couldn’t tell what your drawing was

going to look like. I like that – not

knowing”.
