ABSTRACT
A Short Atlas of Janice Kerbel's Home Climate Gardens Drawn According to Temperate Coordinates focuses on a series of blueprints representing gardens meant for urban spaces. Yet none of these gardens were meant to be constructed and rather will remain on the page. This article focuses on the black and white aesthetics at play in the works and the dual elements of line and text that yield a space for imagination. By focusing on a particular piece, Indoor Island Garden, the article questions what the concept of the island yields for thought through notions of geography and cartography.
