‘Put yourself on the Map’

‘Put Yourself on the Map’ is a piece i did in response to the Miles Km project in Madrid. We were all hosted by our Spanish collaborators and to help us navigate the city they would draw us maps of where they lived. i began to collect them all in my notebook, a series of sketches of local landmarks and peoples houses. I asked for the English to draw their versions and included them all in a zine. I put up some A2 card for the public to participate in the project by drawing their local area. 2 maps of Madrid and London were drawn opposite the zines on a table. I really liked the archiving nature of this project and each sketch is personal and unique. It acts as a souvenir for everybody who took part in the project.
