Find Your Way

Everyone uses maps. But the students in Digital Art (ARTS 144) were given this assignment: “rather than following a map, make a map of how you move in the world,” says their instructor, Jenn Karson. “I wanted them to explore their daily orbit at UVM.” The artist’s maps they created presented a personal geography—drawn from both the inner and outer landscapes of life. They showed places to eat, a network of romantic relationships, “uncharted territory” (in vast-looking mountains beyond Colchester, seen above), and even spots in BTV where different Pokemon Go creatures might be spotted. “The students were developing pathways toward expression and learning digital tools like Adobe Illustrator at the same time,” Karson explains. Their maps were digitally rendered and then printed—and now hang in the hall on the second floor of Cohen Hall on South Williams Street. They’ll be on display through December; you might like to find your way over there.
