Alastair Noble, Mapping the Island, banner
In 2009, Noble planted three hundred rowan trees on the island Martin, Scotland to form a labyrinthine map that follows its topographical contours.
This project alludes to a short story by the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges On Exactitude of Science. Borges’ tale, On Exactitude of Science addresses the idea of mapping an empire and how this map progressively grows over time to embrace the whole of the land. It investigates the concepts of representation and the value of mapping and copying.
Noble has specifically chosen to plant Rowan trees in view of their mythological roots that go back to classical times but particularly their significance to Gaelic folklore. Isle Martin, situated within the archipelago known as the Summer Isles, is one of 790 documented islands located throughout Scotland. Its no longer inhabited.

Marie-Christine Katz Knitting …I need you, performance, yarn
Marie-Christine Katz Knitting …I need you, performance
During the evening I will sit and knit, I will teach the public some basic knitting…
The monologue will be informed by some of the stories told to me by the public.
I would be knitting, if people seem interested I would offer to teach them some basic knitting technic. we might exchange stories about our respective grandmothers
At specific time during the event, seemingly impromptu, I will perform, this includes, a monologue constructed in part by the stories given to me during the knitting session and the unraveling of the knitted yarn…
the performance of the monologue last 5 to 10 minutes, the knitting takes place throughout the entire evening

Paul Fabozzi, Fifth Avenue #1, oil on canvas, 60×48, 2006
Fabozzi’s paintings contain high-speed lines that zip through a rainbow of kaleidoscopic constructions. The artist creates physical environments, we see local boroughs and intergalactic provinces pulsing with city rhythm. Fabozzi interprets the act of walking itself, specifically in terms of time, distance, and the methodical act of counting one’s step.

The idea for this image came from some maps of ancient Jerusalem. This structure no longer exists so I proposed a renovation for it.

This image overlays the images of a map of invisible gravitational forces as they act on bodies in space with an hypothesized map of suspected expanding universes. @ Miyako Yoshinaga Arts Projects
