TIME-LAPSE MAPPING
aka The Dark Duplex is a personal case study of memory mapping, now in its third year. Atom (owner of Chicago's famed Atomix coffeeshop) grew up on Linden Hills Blvd., Minneapolis in the 1970's, and hasn't been back there in 20 years. His childhood street would be the subject of this project:  how much will he remember year after year; how will it feel to look at previous maps and compare their slight innacuracies; how can improvised maps, created without any forewarning, display the pliability of one's memory of their first home, the universe of their street?  The results diagram the rich associations between memory and imagination..

UPDATE:: After requesting (without any warning, of course) the most recent map of 2006, I had the chance to visit Linden Hills Blvd., Minneapolis on my own, using all three maps as my only guide to identify the buildings annotated within them.  More info <here>
