Mapping Notes

Mapping practices have a long history of being a means and a method of imposing colonialist hegemony. With the Climate Art Map, we have aimed to view land not in terms of provincial or nation-state borders associated with such hegemonic interests. Instead, by navigating to the description of each artist, a viewer may see where an artist is located in relation to native land(s) as well as ecoregion. Yet, while we are pleased to be able to show a dataset relationship between artists and these other markers, the land upon which each artist sits is not a mere dataset. Behind each dataset lives rich natural and cultural histories that inform our lives sensorially, socially, economically, and so forth. Also, due to the larger forces of climate change, ecological transformation, and an ongoing coloniality, it is important to note that borders and boundaries, as well as species-land relationships, are porous and mutable.
