An Atlas for Unmarked Roads

What is the relationship between place and people? What makes a particular place home?

I was raised in the care of gravel roads, on a farmyard situated amongst a grid that has been superimposed onto the land. This grid divides the land, it separates, and simultaneously it links. 

In An Atlas for Unmarked Roads, I have used satellite imagery to map out each road, each field, each yard site, and each landmark. I have used my memory of this place to locate landmarks, like an old plow, or a tree that was once there, but is now gone. 

These drawings map out the place that I know as home, that my family has called home for over one hundred years. Home is created through time and place, through roads and landmarks, and through a beginning and an end.
