strange maps

la passione per le mappe geografiche
l'ho ereditata da mio nonno amilcare

forse per questo spesso mi diverto a visitare alcuni blog
che raccontano di mappe molto particolari

cartophilia: maps and map memorabilia

questa opera è di nancy goodman lawrence

Maps are a huge resource for my work, less for their literal representations than the endless possibilities they offer in rendering the geography of the human body and the space it occupies. Mountains, oceans and roads become veins, tree branches, rug patterns and clothing, as I surgically manipulate them, bit by bit, from one context to another. I find myself minimizing or beating back the most obvious map references to specific locations, but they have a way of bubbling up in ironic ways.
