Ontological Road Map

Robert Walden Ontological Road Map 042806200610 x 10 inchesink on latex paint on panel

"Ontology is a central theme throughout my work because it deals with the nature of existence or being by analyzing concepts about essence, substance, time, location, space, and identity. My work addresses these ideas by building upon physical, temporal, and literal metaphors that are often used to convey ideas about a process as well as a product. For instance, each drawing is not only a finished work that represents a place, but it is also a reflection of the hand of the artist, the act of making lines. Each of these drawings involves a labor-intensive process where much time is needed for construction and development. Once the drawing is complete, it is a picture of time. That is, each drawing reveals the time it takes to make a road map and then each finished drawing actually represents that time. All along, there is a literal play on mapping. Each drawing represents a process (of mapmaking, of creating roads) and a place (a representation of existence that can be either real or imagined). - Statement for Ontological Road Maps series, by Robert Walden (2007) at the marcia wood gallery

Excellent post, I just love the maps, specially the nicest maps. Modern digital GIS maps such as ArcMap typically project north at the top of the map, but use math degrees (0 is east, degrees increase counter-clockwise), rather than compass degrees and it'd be nice if you can add something about this, because they are the best invent done. 23jj

So just like others, if a person has interest in the fresh news updates, he can surely give a preference to online medium for getting familiarity with these topics.
We realize that we don't need to listen to outside authorities; we are not guided by our internal authority. All kinds of sports news today are offered live through the television.

Along with the stories about celebrities and other things,
you will find many different stories about regular people and people
who have made the news for many different reasons. Also, find one that has includes videos explaining the latest news because
that is sometimes the best way to see it. As a consequence it can
be contended the media is directing many persons
astray moving away from what should be its aim of presenting discerning
news and analytic thinking of pressing topics for this celebrity
frippery.

You need to flex those muscles regularly to keep them strong and resilient.
Naturally, if you are not a morning person, setting your alarm for 5am to go run a few miles
will probably fail. To keep one motivated it is important to alternate
the activities after one to two weeks.
