An Imaginary Country
Maps have proven to be a versatile medium through which to express our inquisitive nature and make sense of our physical world. Whatever their purpose or subject matter, even the most rudimentary maps have an inherent beauty, an attraction in their way of ordering things. They mark the division between art and science, known and unknown, good and evil. Hoping to generate a deeply personal map, “An Imaginary Country” is an attempt to look at the metaphorical potential of cartography, allowing space for dreaming.
