Susan is engaged in challenging the conventions that have built up within her design practice, and developing art methodologies by combining drawing and notation with digital media. Her design practice investigates mark-making processes which can serve as notational methods for transcribing our movement in space. Diagrammatic practices are an important component of her research as they correspond to methods employed within both graphic design and artistic practice.
My artistic practice investigates the tensions between physical boundaries (space as it is experienced) and virtual boundaries (space as it is represented). Mapping traditionally conveys a stable relation between physical territory and occupation of that space. However, my mapping interventions and visualizations aim to undermine these impressions of stability.
