Ever since I can remember, I have had a fascination with maps – and have had a marvelous time discovering my identity while navigating them across oceans, mountains, and cities. Shannon Rankin is a visual artist whose body of work has been inspired by the language of maps. She says, “maps are the everyday metaphors that speak to the fragile and transitory state of our lives and our surroundings. Rivers shift their course, glaciers melt, volcanoes erupt, boundaries change both physically and politically. The only constant is change”. Cutting, collaging, and folding are just a few of the techniques Rankin uses to explore the metaphoric potential of maps in her installations, 2D, and 3D works. Exploring the notion of place, perception, and experience, she invents a landscape in which examine our relationship with the world.
