All these maps.  
A friend of mine knows an old abandoned paper mill in upstate New York. From his last trip he brought back a folio of prints of machine plans and the schematics for a boiler room. Fell right the fuck in love. Bartered with him for one and a frame for the lithograph I'm doing of them for his room, which is stacked with old collected things, most of which are suitcases and steamer trunks and other wonderful brown things. Pictures of the plans and the lithograph coming soon, as soon as I get out of the art barn and back into the world.

I've also been spending time with an engineer lately and started thinking about buildings and moving parts in very different ways. I think the focus of my Div II, which was storytelling, is changing as I work on every new image. The shift is moving instead towards record keeping, a subtle difference I've just pinned down and continue to think about. Your thoughts more than welcome.

Have you looked at the constructionists? They were very concerned with maps and diagrams, but in terms of mapping interpersonal relationships as opposed to mechanical workings of a building. Worth checking out if you're interested in storytelling and recordkeeping.
