Palisade Head is an immersive 65 x 74-inch print by Minneapolis-based artist Scott Nedrelow. “It’s more like a an actual-size map, but it’s not a useful map — it doesn’t show a large area like satellite maps or blow up a view that could be examined at more of a “honey, I shrunk the kids” level of fascination. it’s just a segment of ground presented actual size on a wall, something that can be ordinarily observed. so there’s a deadpan poetic element, it becomes significant because it doesn’t show anything that can’t already be easily seen”
