Curated Creativity

Making Art with Maps

“Producing displacements of location, the holes subvert ability of any map to communicate coherent information; but as maps are layered on top of each other, passageways emerge into internal spaces, leaving open possibilities for creating something new from those lost areas”

Karen Margolis is an American artist who creates artworks from old maps, using a soldering iron to create holes in them and layering them on top of each other.
