Maps

"Inspection and interviews. Close personal observation and talking with long term residents. It's a hard thing, really, to erase a trail. A lot of information can be recovered if you stay at it."

"Of course, but nobody has the time for this kind of field-work anymore. That's unfortunate, because this information is what we need, you know. This shows history and how people fit the places they occupy It's about what gets erased and what comes to replace it. These maps reveal the foundations beneath the ephemera." (from The Mappists in Light Action in the Caribbean by Barry Lopez)
