Using my own technique inspired from traditional Asian marbled paper, I make maps. These maps are not geographical, but philosophical guides and directions. They are reproduced digitally with text included. The maps are in a long line on the floor surrounded with soil. Mixed in the soil is a large collage of cutouts from contemporary magazine articles and ads, representing consumer waste in the landfill. Binoculars are provided.

MEDIUM AND SIZE: Installation art. 3 ft. x 36 ft. [1 x 12 m]. 28 maps 8” x 10” [20 x 25.4 cm]
