Rearranging the Landscape of Maps
All the playing with paper last week is leading somewhere interesting this week as I continue to work with maps. I’ve been cutting many circles and transforming them into triangles, which then in turn attach together to become a larger form. The play of shape, form, with the colours and textures of the map paper are making for interesting things.
I haven’t included a photo of the overall work, but it’s about 33″ x 27.5″ at the moment and is made up of about one hundred cut circles. The bottom photo here hints at where I hope to go with this, and intersperse small paper cuts throughout.
