Season 1 Episode 6 On the Series
The title of the project comes from the medieval mapping technique of drawing dragons and sea monsters over unexplored or dangerous territories. Although we now find these maps to be historic figments of a medieval imagination, many of us carry these same maps around in our heads. We negotiate our identities through space, pre-emptively planning escapes and defenses should the city square off against us. But as the stories from each episode show us, monsters can also disappear as we unlearn fear and access new spaces. Or, the monsters remain and we navigate these spaces anyway.
