Bill Gilbert: Physiocartographies @ Mesa Public Library Art Gallery (through Sept. 27)
Started in 2003 in the field with the Land Arts of the American West mobile studio, the physiocartographies series combines the abstraction of cartographic maps with the physical act of walking the surface of the planet to create portraits of place. Gilbert follows prescribed paths across the landscape using a GPS unit to navigate and record points, a camera to shoot images and a  digital recorder to capture sounds. The final works appear as reconstructed maps, videos and installations

Join the artist for a reception and gallery walk through 10 a.m.-noon Sept. 15.
Gilbert will also give a presentation on his work followed by a discussion with LANL Visualization team members and others 1-2:30 p.m. at Bradbury Science Museum.
