Speculative Studio #1 – David Cotton
A fabricated version of the creative processes that propel the artist David Cotton
‘An interest in cartography informed with a desire for travel, Cotton’s work attaches the historical presumptions of mythology to the scientific advances of modern map making techniques. This reveals both the inaccuracies that exist within modern map design and cartography’s capacity for narrative, aesthetic and metaphor.’
Speculative Studios was an exhibition at BasementArtsProject that assumed the studio spaces of two artists, based on their exhibition pieces from COLONIZE, New York, in 2014.
