Ann Chamberlain explains that “Islands of San Francisco" is an exercise in mapping the city as a series of islands, imagining what is isolated, revealed, concealed, or adrift. Perhaps this is an exercise in mythologies of place—archipelagos or constellations, sacred mountains, gated enclaves, nature preserves, or even penal colonies—all linked by common species, activities, or interests. By mapping I hope to reveal some of these layers and associations, both the pinnacles and the underbelly of the city.”
