Map of the Heart is a series of participatory, public art projects combining true stories and the collective imagination of the individuals of a community to develop audience-interactive visual fictions: an interactive photo book, and an interactive, public performance with a wearable constructed with photos and text.
The process begins by following 20– 30 participants of each city through their daily activities and take photos and collect their stories.
It begins on a very personal, individual level and develops outward into the community in which it occurs to explore each person’s relationship with their social environment.
The project has been done in Sandnes, Norway; Santa Fe, NM, USA; and Chicago,IL, USA is in progress. To follow up with the process of the project, please visit http://maphearts.wordpress.com/
