Signature Details: Original Artwork | Given the accessibility of digital mapping media, the demand for printed maps will almost certainly continue to decrease, at least in relation to their use as a reference tool. Old cartographic techniques are disappearing as GPS systems advance. The hand loses its efficiency as perceptions of orientation and navigation are hinged on satellites rather than stars. Jurisdictions are blurred. Territory becomes an even more unstable entity. Sanding away the topographical and political markers on maps reveals an alien geography for resurfacing earth.

Biography: Agustina Woodgate’s practice focuses on the politics of landscapes and infrastructures as a conceptual and public geography. She recombines, activates and repurposes available resources while setting alternative systems in motion. Woodgates' approach is speculative, practical, and site and context-responsive, presenting critical possibilities to concepts on social orders, resource management and information distribution bringing clarity, scale, and accessibility.
In 2011 she co-founded radioee.net a nomadic, translingual, online radio station, a radio streaming on mobility, movement and climate transformation themes.
