Being present in the land to take in the colors, smells, sounds, and light qualities is a vital part of her process. She layers this collected sensory information with both real and imaginary cartographic elements. This invented imagery is a mapping of sorts, and allows an approach to combine a current reality with references to geological periods in the distant past and into the projected future of rapid climate change.

Tallmadge has been a resident of Sitka in 2021 and 2011.
