This month, Jackalope Ranch opened its first curated exhibition, You Are Here: A Collection of Maps of Phoenix, at Regular Gallery. While you still have a chance to check out the show, which will be up until November 12, we'll give you a little background on each creation. 

We spoke with Monica Aissa Martinez, Safwat SaleemDavid QuanSarah HurwitzThomas "Breeze" Marcusand Sue Chenoweth; this afternoon, local artist Carrie Marill answers a few questions about her map:

1. What were the inspirations for your map? 
I was inspired by the mountains encompassing Phoenix. Went to this great map shop called "Wide world of Maps" and found topo's of the mountains. 
2. Give us a childhood memory of a map. 
A map of the neighborhood based on which houses had Jack-O-Lantern's at Halloween. 

3. Do you think maps and cartography are important? Why? 
I'm a girl, I suck at reading maps. I let Google Maps to do it for me. 

4. What are your map's boundaries and how did you choose them? 
The edge of the sheep skin chose the boundries. 

5. Would you create another map? 
Hell yes!
