map folding for beginners is an exploration of the interplay between the live and the mediated body and voice. It explores themes of multiplicity and choice. A highly visual and layered work, map folding for beginners, depicts the two intersecting narratives of two distinctly different women.
After many years working as a collaborator in projects lead by other artists or collective processes, map folding for beginners (2001) was Tamara's first work created under her own name. Its creation provided an opportunity to draw upon and coalesce a diverse history of interdisciplinary practice.
