Annandale Memory Map

Annandale Memory Map Mirror SydneyI made this map as part of my zine, Disposable Camera, to show the intersection between Annandale and me. It’s a memory map but also a memoir map, showing the six years I lived in Annandale, from 1998 to 2003. The map mostly abandons geography in favour of slippery dips, which represent  different avenues of memory.  At the centre is the floorplan of the house I lived in, a crumbling and mouldy terrace house that I am surprised to see still standing every time I pass by.

(The story in the zine is about the goth house and being a teenager and gathering clues for how to live from those around you, copies available here.)
