Cartographic Imaginaries

Plotting Novels in Wales

I visited an interesting exhibition on show at Swansea Museum today. Cartographic Imaginaries is a collection of commissioned artwork in response to twelve English language novels set in Wales. The works form part of the wider Literary Atlas of Wales project which explores how English language novels set in Wales contribute to our understanding of the real and imagined nature of the country.

I particularly enjoyed the Sean Vicary animation ‘sitelines‘. I remember being impressed by his work at the 2014 National Eisteddfod in Llanelli.
