9780470850763: Mapping in the Age of Digital Media: The Yale Symposium

Combining the insights of designers, theorists, engineers and artists this book examines the cultural, aesthetic and political effects of mapping techniques on the fields of cultural production in art, science and architecture

In recent years, new digital mapping techniques have begun to alter profoundly the ways in which we measure and represent space. In architecture, it is such techniques that have made possible such extraordinary structures as Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao.

3D scanning technology, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Satellite Positioning Systems to mention just a few have produced unique visions of architecture and its environment.

  • Digital mapping is redefining the possibilities of architectural construction and is gaining importance throughout all aspects of science and art.
  • Cross-disciplinary contributions are featured, from engineers, designers, theorists and artists
  • Richly illustrated, including many extraordinary computer-generated images
  • Should also be an adoptable title, the author himself keen to adopt it for each of the four years through his course at Yale

From the Back Cover:

In recent years, new digital mapping techniques have begun to alter profoundly the ways we measure and represent space.  These techniques operate at a multiplicity of scales - from the global to the local - and are employed in a variety of disciplines, both analytical and creative

3D scanning technology, advanced laser altimetry, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), to mention just a few, have produced unique visions of the body and its terrestrial environment.  If these new forms of cartographic representation in fact work actively to shape our perceptions of reality, what then are their cultural, aesthetic and political effects?  What changes do they bring to the various fields of cultural production - Architecture, Science and Art?

Combining the insights of designers, theorists, engineers and artists, this book examines these and related issues, providing an initial interrogation of emerging cartographic practices in the digital age.
