Traverse Me: Jeremy Wood Walks Warwick Campus

Traverse Me Jeremy Wood has been creating maps from his GPS tracklogs for years. His latest project, a work commissioned by the Warwick Arts Centre’s Meade Gallery, is an intricate map of the University of Warwick’s 300-hectare campus, which he walked over 17 days, creating 383 kilometres (238 miles) of traces.

“I responded to the structure of each location and avoided walking along roads and paths when possible,” Wood writes. “Security was called on me twice on separate occasions and I lost count of how many times I happened to trigger an automatic sliding door.”

At the bottom of the map, he paced out a title, scale, compass and his name — creating a virtual cartouche in open fields.
