Emma McNally makes pencil drawings on paper that remind everyone of something – star maps, city grids, network diagrams, physics experiments. In fact, they are none of these things. Inspired by visualizations of complex systems but not based on actual data, they spring entirely from her imagination. And that’s cool too. Her page at the Trinity Contemporary Gallery site has more.
