Transforming Nine Mile Run, CD-ROM

Artist and re-cartographer Richard Pell has taken the form and imagery from the historic-romantic Frick Park map and extended its symbology, form and content into the 21st century. The re-mapping provides the viewer with a point of access into a scientifically and aesthetically informed data base on the public realm of the Nine Mile Run Valley. Juxtaposing the (private) intimacy of paper maps with the potential for public access and use of electronic information, this CD-ROM projects the form of the Nine Mile Run teamıs final report in the year 2000. Feel free to access this public access report and data base to learn more about Nine Mile Run and its potential for social and ecological restoration.

The CD-ROM is available for purchase, if you would like a copy, please send a check for $5+$2 shipping and handling to:
