• Venice Map 2

  • I started with the idea that maps are not too useful in Venice. Using a substrate of US nautical maps, I printed, drew and painted maps of Venice and then folded the long maps in a manner to convey the feeling of wandering and being lost. I included a grid map of Philadelphia, abstracted, to contrast with the meandering streets of Venice. The maps are sewn into a folded cover of handmade paper.
