Two recent mapping projects brought this home: In 2011, MICA grads Ingrid Burrington and Carey Chiaia made a giant puzzle out of Baltimore's neighborhoods for Artscape. It was a clear, playful way to bring people together as they tried to assemble the pieces, nearly 300 in all. It was also humbling to learn the names of all these worlds next door, sometimes just a few blocks square, that we never knew existed. In 2014, Jason Hoylman asked friends to keep travel journals for a month, which he then turned into maps, tracing the routes into laser-cut lines on wooden cubes. I was one of the participants in Hoylman's project, and I was personally ashamed that so little of my travel in the city had been outside what Baynard Woods and others have called the "White L," up and down the Charles Street/Jones Falls corridor and east along the waterfront.
