Here, Karen O'Rourke explores a series of walking/mapping projects by contemporary artists. Some chart 'emotional GPS'; some use GPS for creating 'datascapes' while others use their legs to do 'speculative mapping.' Many work with scientists, designers, and engineers. O'Rourke offers close readings of these works and situates them in relation to landmark works from the past half-century
