At the London Transport Museum tomorrow there will be a day of presentations and discussions to celebrate the ‘Mind The Map’ exhibition which has been a major part of the museum’s summer programme.
Taking place from 10 until 4pm, ‘The Art Of Maps & Mapping’ will include a talk from Simon Patterson, the celebrated creator of the map that started the London underground map-modifying craze, ‘Great Bear’. Susan Stockwell, who makes complex works of art using left-over technology, will also be participating, and intriguing artist Jeremy Wood will be in conversation with Shane Walter, the director of onedotzero. The Wikipedia article on Jeremy states that:
“Jeremy Wood is a UK-based GPS artist. Over the past ten years Jeremy Wood has pioneered the act of drawing and mapping with satellite navigation technology and video by treating himself as a geodesic pencil”
Intrigued? Tickets are still available priced at £30 (£25.00 concessions). This includes all the talks, lunch, refreshments and a visit to the Mind the Map exhibition.
