For the Projects: Port Credit 2010 exhibition organized by Blackwood Gallery, I have proposed a new local cartography through the creation of a meandering cycling route that retraces history and borders.

I have created a limited edition map with proposed route details - including statistical information and historical references - that will be available gratis to visitors of the exhibition.
