In the summer of , I started visiting Prospect Park every weekend. It was the only other place I went after three months in quarantine. I gained inspiration by looking at the natural occurrences that happen there. As I went there more often, I gradually became more familiar with the two different paths I constantly walked on. Although the paths never changed, my experiences there were constantly changing.

My thesis explores the many ways I can acknowledge the changing environment in Prospect Park that is often captured as a fixed representation on modern maps. Therefore, throughout this semester, I visited the park various times throughout four seasons to document and re-map from my experiences.
