How do we visually organize information and document experiences? Mental maps are used by behavioral geographers to record the subjective qualities of a place, and artist Meredith Snider has produced a conceptual map in that vein. To create this work, Snider used the area around the Ottawa Art Gallery and the University of Ottawa as a central point of departure, driving a rental car along five different routes up to 100 km in each direction. Relying upon memory, she then recorded the geographies she encountered during these trips in ink and graphite, extending our understanding of the mapping of this place.
