ART & CARTOGRAPHY is maintained by the Commission on Art & Cartography of the International Cartographic Association (ICA). We explore the increasing relations between art and cartography, and to stimulate new forms of interaction. The goal is to provide an environment in which artists, researchers, architects, cartographers and citizen in general can have access to different sources.
Call for Participation: The International Cartographic Association (ICA) Commission on Art & Cartography invites you to participate in their Pre-Conference Workshop “Reclaiming through Mapping: Olympic Sites of Tokyo.” Some of these spaces, including the conference venue, are on reclaimed land or artificial islands in Tokyo Bay built out of waste landfill. This workshop investigates the question of how place is constructed, using an experimental, performative and site-specific methodology developed by the art-research collective Hamilton Perambulatory Unit, who will lead a participatory mapping walk in Tokyo that looks to uncover the layers of urban development history of the 2 Tokyo Olympics and the high-growth (1964) and post-growth (2020) periods they represent.
