Scatter is large-scale multimedia works created from the pages of the Atlas Eclipticalis (1958), a codex of star charts by Czech astronomer Antonín Bečvář.
As with my explorations of notation in weaving and music, these works come from a many-year investigation into looking at, and working with, terrestrial and celestial maps. I see a relationship between the role of maps and the draft notation or musical score. Each visual diagram contains both a graphic and geographic life. Transcending language, they record and catalog information. They serve as instructional blueprints capable of dissemination, translation and interpretation. Each reflects a layered network of connectivity.
