There There Square watch on-line
2002, 14 minutes, color, silent
The desire to own and name land and the pleasures of seeing from a distance color this personal survey of the history of mapmaking in the New World.
“There There Square” takes a close look at the gestures of travelers, mapmakers, and saboteurs that determine how we read - and live within - the lines that define the United States.
"A wry, thoughtful, deceptively simple, and completely silent exploration of the ways that geography can shape history (personal, political). The effect is revelatory—one small shift in vantage point, a blink, and the whole world's turned around." Nick Rutigliano Village Voice
Named one of the top ten best avant-garde works of 2002 by the "Village Voice."
