A sense of place

One of the mixed-media pictures by Stacey Durand at the Museum of Art at the University of New Hampshire.

Much of her work involves exploring the visual environments of New Hampshire towns and cities.

The map  in this picture makes us wonder how much of future mapmaking will be hurt by the use of GPS. Will many people in 20 years not know how to read a map? Of course maps can be beautiful -- indeed an art form. It would be very sad if the physical-mapmaking craft fades away.
