Maps

Tiffany Chung’s maps interweave historical and geological events, spatial and sociopolitical changes with future predictions, revealing cartography as a discipline that draws on perception and fantasy as much as geography. Exploring world geopolitics by incorporating international treaties with local histories, her work re-maps memories that are not part of any official records. Based on meticulous ethnographic research, Chung’s work excavates layers of history, rewrites chronicles of places, and creates interventions into the spatial narratives produced through statecraft.
