Syracuse University Libraries’ new Biblio Gallery Exhibit on the 4th Floor of Bird Library is a cartography piece titled “Isle of Brendan” by Eric M. Warren, a fourth-year student in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. His exhibit runs from January 27, 2020 through mid-March.
“Taking inspiration from the microcosms that surround us in the natural world, I have found that often the maps we draw yield fantastical elements themselves. Through the gathering of hundreds of lines, symbols, and words, and the arrangement of them all into a specific order, we generate a greater meaning that returns to us worlds which we do and do not know. I implore you to view this piece not as a map, but rather as an orchestration of familiar parts, coalesced into an unfamiliar and nonexistent land,” said E. M. Warren.
