Our September presenters are Tim Wallace & Andy Woodruff of Bostonography.
Free tickets will be available Monday, September 16th, starting at 7:00 AM.
Andy Woodruff is a cartographer by trade and training. For five years he has been a partner in Axis Maps, designing and building high-end interactive maps, typographic city map posters, and the occasional piece for the Boston Globe. He has lived in the Boston area almost as long, relentlessly seeking to learn about and celebrate the city and its quirks through mapping projects, and to spread the joy of mapping.
Tim Wallace is a Boston-born cartography nerd, a PhD candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Graphics Editor at The New York Times. In recent years, he has created maps for The Huffington Post, The Boston Globe, TIME Magazine and others. Tim is fascinated by aspects of art in cartography and mental mapping and loves answering the question “Hasn’t everything already been already mapped?” with a simple “no.”
Bostonography & Infinite Mapping. There are infinite geographic stories to tell about a city and city life. Bostonography, besides being a simple blog about Boston maps, is a project that attempts to use maps and design to discover new geographic tales and bring light to those tales we all knew but never paid much attention. Boston is city with unique culture, history and physical form—and one full of creative minds. Turning those minds’ excitement and creativity toward the city through maps, and now through participation in the mapping process, is one small way of maintaining and expanding what makes the city and interesting place to live in and visit. From buses to booze to radio waves, see how maps might inspire thought, discussion, and even real change.
