Notes:
“It's interesting, looking back at this body work, how little we use maps nowadays. Just last night I threw away a road atlas from my car which I hadn't used for years since the invention of the TomTom [a GPS device]. I am constantly made aware that this satellite technology enables me to arrive somewhere with little idea of where I actually am.”--Artist's statement, concerning a map-based series of three-dimensional collages completed by Cockburn in the early 2000s.
