Credits and HÍ SW̱ KE/Gratitudes


The Untitled ṮEṮÁĆES map, the first haptic map prototype, was built collaboratively. Kim Shortreed came up with the concept for a "haptic map" as part of his PhD project, "Contracolonial Practices in Salish Sea Namescapes." Kim brought the idea to TEMOSEṈ Chazz Elliott and they co-created the concept for the Untitled ṮEṮÁĆES map. TEMOSEṈ designed and carved the outside panels with help from Matthew Parlby-Elliott. Kim built the map's structure (with help from TEMOSEṈ, Matt, and Ben Olsen) and the interactive islands. Jesse Campbell painted the seascape horizon.
