Nathan Bishop discusses a series of projects in which episodic ordering systems are applied at urban scale. One inspiration was the shifting identities of characters in David Lynch’s 2001 film “Mulholland Drive.” Bishop identifies five sites and their accompanying “episodes,” including an area at the edge of Boston defined by a fragmented edge condition. He discusses urban mapping techniques, citing Giambattista Nolli’s 1748 map of Rome. Bishop presents a video of an installation in Paris.
