Toronto Street Map Rings

Toronto Street Map RingsAnna Lindsay MacDonald

As I navigated the city I was struck by the grid-like quality of the Toronto streets, the intersections and interwoven connections. The imposing urban sprawl I reduced in size to a more legible scale, neighborhoods became bracelets and rings, adornment objects as well as informative objects. I wanted the wearer to engage with their neighborhoods, with transparent acrylic pieces wrapped around their hands and fingers.

Philosophical issues in cartography emerged, the fact that maps are subjective documents used to convey ownership. I therefore began to fabricate my own neighborhoods by incorporating lace patterning into the streetscapes, my own cartographic truth.
