The Watershed Globe Project uses drawing, printmaking, animation, and sculpture as tools to examine maps of the Ohio River from 1793 to 2019. From European settlers to Google Maps developers, cartographers make a series of choices when drawing a map. As the artist re-drew these maps layer by layer, she charted the ways that waterways, railroads, and roads were represented over time. What can we learn if we read a map as a reflection of social relationships, values, or ideas? A multitude of users continuously update the maps we use today. How do maps inform our sense of a place?
