Laura works with notions of cartography, the language of drawing and memory within the context of the visual arts and community. Click here for a video documenting a community mapping project she completed in the neighborhood of Getsemaní in Cartagena, Colombia.
Over the course of weekly mapping sessions at The Haven, a local art space, a coffee shop, and city hall, Mara Sprafkin and Laura Snyder facilitated the creation of over 90 maps, providing a cumulative picture of our experiences of home.
