Desktop Residency – Dishes
2019

Made for Desktop Residency 71, I commissioned fantasy cartographer Eri to produce a series of images that translate my own photography into elevated maps of fantasy terrain. Eri makes a living though Patreon, producing maps for the roleplaying community, who use them as the basis for fantasy dungeon crawls. The photographs, which document the misused commons of my collective housing, are converted into an image-tool for the modular commons of fantasy role-play, and will be released as a bonus for Eri’s Patreon subscribers. Meanwhile, I play a D&D campaign with my co-housing neighbours, incorporating her fantasy cartography of our domestic dilemmas into the fiction.
