My work stems from an interest in the way we, as humans, understand our environment through map making. The lines of a map illustrate the geographical and social history of a place. By applying a strict set of ordered techniques, I cut maps to manipulate this and make my work. Through my labour, I bring order to the chaos of the world each map represents.
A map is a practical object that become impractical through my working process. The paper map has also become obsolete under the weight of technology. By reconfiguring the spaces depicted in these dying objects, I render them useful once more.
