PIP Gallery

this site specific wallpaper experiments with cognitive mapping in the Pearl District, Portland OR.


  1. take a series of walks over the course of one week within 3 blocks of the gallery
  2. make one template based on beacons and/or remarkable characters
  3. jot quick sketches on the spot

at the end of the week, there were hundreds of sketches. public space as a medium became a site of intense negotiation. the walks that offered social interaction rather than simple documentation were illustrated. the piece was delivered on a machine grey palette meant to function as an integrated sub-cultural circuit.
