Maps layers sheets of clear acrylic into one column, each engraved with a different location-based data set from Baltimore City. Location sets such as Vacant Buildings, Mural Locations, and Public Pools individually form an incomplete map of Baltimore. However, stacked on top of each other the transparent pieces “fill in the blanks” to create a complete map. Maps responds to absorbing and resisting supposedly holistic media portrayals of Baltimore through generic data sets.
