An Open Atlas of the Petrocapital

Custom box and folio created in collaboration with Rozalinda Borcila.

The box contains a shallow subdivider for pamphlets and zines, an envelope under the lid for small loose sheets, and a typewritten title and colophon on the box exterior. 

The folio opens to a large compartment to house large maps and atlases. The typewritten colophon is placed on the inside flap.

An Open Atlas of the Petrocapital is an archive of printed materials and objects that document a series of walks/workshops entitled Daytripping the Petrocapital. The walks explore how petroleum and finance are shaping notions of democracy, community and participation. The project explores alternatives “from below” by focusing on indigenous histories and knowledge, and by organizing experimental "people’s field trips" to some key sites in the infrastructure of petroleum and finance. The Atlas—a collection of pamphlets, maps, drawings and coloring book pages―will remain at the library for the public to use. Readers are invited to contribute their own materials and thus grow and reshape the archive to reflect local knowledges, struggles and interventions. Waterways before Chicago is a silkscreen print of the waterways and subcontinental divide before colonial occupation; this print will be available as a giveaway during a community silkscreening workshop. Calumet Soundscapes is an experimental sound mapping workshop with young women and girls from the Rebel Bells. It will take place in June, July and August, with a formal presentation of their work in September.
