Vanessa Berry – Mirror Sydney Maps

Mirror Sydney is a city of undercurrents and overlooked details, illuminated by memory and imagination. Its maps present an alternative Sydney, of suburban anomalies, mysterious infrastructure, anachronistic businesses and underground networks. Like star charts, the Mirror Sydney maps show constellations of urban and suburban details, from the objects lost on trains, to the unlikely landmarks of Parramatta Road and the multiple Harbour Bridges that appear throughout the suburbs. Created for the book “Mirror Sydney: An Atlas of Reflections”, they combine detailed line drawings with typewritten and Letraset text to reveal the relationships and trajectories that can be drawn between the details of the urban environment by those who seek to reimagine it.
