The Cartographic Grounds exhibit, which featured work by Stoss, reimagined the projective potential of cartographic practices that afford greater proximity to the ground itself. The approaches presented here seek to reconcile the precision and instrumentality of the plan with the geographic and territorial scope of the map. Cartographic Grounds investigates a range of surface conditions and representational tools, cutting across multiple disciplines. The exhibit ran from November 1 to December 19, 2012 at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and was initiated by Mohsen Mostafavi, dean of the faculty of design and Alexander and Victoria Wiley Professor of Design, and Charles Waldheim, John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture and chair of the department of landscape architecture.
