Lordy Rodriguez: Reimagining Boundaries
Maps are central to the work of SJSU Assistant Professor of Art Lordy Rodriguez. His “Untitled 774” is an appropriate cover image for an issue dedicated to reimagining boundaries. Born in the Philippines and reared in Texas, Rodriguez uses the visual language of cartography to go beyond map-making into abstracted, imaginary terrain. See his public art in the United Airlines Terminal at the San Francisco International Airport, and, in the future, at a port of entry building in Columbus, New Mexico.
