Emotional Maps

Emotional Maps

Their main body of work, which they are best known for, is their Emotional Maps, a series of black and white ink drawings. Though simple, the images within the landscapes are full of activity and details. Amanda aims for the viewer to see themselves in the pieces and to add their own ‘colour’ to it. 

The process to create Emotional Maps requires an introspective and reflective approach. Each map first begins with a theme such as Courage, Personal Leadership, Resilience and Anxiety. Amanda then creates a list of feelings, emotions, behaviours that are associated with that experience of the emotion. They review the relation between the feelings with landmarks and buildings typically found in urban and suburban landscapes.
