"The current British Library exhibition London: a Life in Maps demonstrates our fascination with art and science of mapping, linking the global to the local and the personal. For its first major event of 2007, CreateKX celebrates creative and artistic innovation which uses satellite, mobile and internet technology to transform the world of maps and builds the relationships between places. This event will showcase projects like Proboscis’ extraordinary Urban Tapestries, a “Mass Observation for the 21st Century”, and Jen Hamilton and Jen Southern’s Running Stitch a huge tapestry map, created live over four weeks, that uses satellite navigation technology to explore urban environments. A unique event not to be missed with a chance to talk to these artists and other creative and digital innovators over drinks." No cost to attend.
