LA#__ is a project that currently consists of 40 hand-drawn maps of Los Angeles. I explore the boundaries of neighborhoods and my subjective relationship to them through meticulously rendering areas with contrasting pattern. These maps provide a visual framework that enables me to reflect upon the sprawling, diverse, and complex city that they depict. Within and beyond the boundaries transcribed on the map lie multiplicities of expectation and perception. Through tracing maps of Los Angeles I attempt to explore a city and a symbol that continues reforming and slipping into and out of definitions.
