Map: Index of Inaccessibility & Border Plants in Hamtramck and Detroit

During last year’s Porous Borders Festival in Hamtramck there were a handful of great examples of engaged mapping projects:

porous-copia

Index of Inaccessibility” attempted to re-draw one of the borders of the GM Assembly Plant by walking around it. The intent by the artist-organizers Ludmila Ferrari, Juan Leal, and Félix Zamora was to create a new map of the border that is not constituted by the presence of the GM Assembly Plant.

Maia-Plant-Map

The Border Plant Mapping Project” set out to document any accessible plants along the Detroit/Hamtramck border and result in a map that anyone can use to find the mapped plants. This project was developed by Maia Asshaq, a writer and performer living in Hamtramck.
