Peter Dykhuis

Peter Dykhuis uses mapping throughout his work.

Social, geographical, linguistically, radar etc.

Maps, flags and state symbols abound in Peter Dykhuis’s art: “You Are Here” superimposes a map of Halifax on envelopes; “Radar Paintings” uses airport radar images; “World View: The G7 Suite” encloses maps from each country within their respective flags. Dykhuis wrote to say this about his site: “This site is an overview of artwork that explores the graphic, social and political contexts of maps and map-making in contemporary culture. Of major interest is the overlap between fixed, analog, paper-based maps and the fluid domain of digital mapping courtesy of satellite systems and 24/7 computer-based viewing.”
