Looking for Length
Jeanette Johns uses maps and perspective drawing to understand the infinite. She creates prints, sculptural and videos to convey her investigation into the fascination of landscape.

Perhaps our understanding of the cyclical path of our globe, gained through our experience of days and years is connected to our ability to imagine further than we can measure.
