Memory mapping

While I was back home in Cedarburg, WI, I spent an afternoon walking the length of Washington Avenue, the main drag, on one side of the street on the way out and the other side on the way back, plotting waypoints into a handheld GPS device every time I recalled a specific memory, most of which were location-specific. The walk took about 4 hours. Then I inputted the coordinates into Google Maps. Next, I'll use these points and their proximity to one another to create a map/diagram based on a system of information graphics that connects each memory point to the person it invovled and their current location on a map, and the emotions associated with each memory. Tons of work to do before Thursday. Results to come. Stay tuned.
