In 2010, Rebecca Solnit published Infinite City, a book that looks at mapping processes in a beautiful and innovative new way. These maps are visually compelling, artfully constructed and also tackle socially, environmentally and politically relevant material. She stated in a 2010 interview “Cartography used to be both an art and a science. I wanted to return to that.”
The Cesar Chavez Student Center Art Gallery currently has six prints of Solnit’s Infinite City maps on display in our map show, Vanishing Point: Uncovering Invisible Boundaries, Rare Maps and Systems of Thought. For more information about Rebecca Solnit, her Infinite City book and other projects check out her website www.rebeccasolnit.com. Some more photos of her maps are viewable in an article, Rebecca Solnit’s ‘Infinite City’ Maps SF in a Whole New Light featured at 7X7.com.
