Map of the World, 2017-ongoing
EuroGraphics Map of the World Puzzle (1000-pieces)
Map of the World is an on-going project in response to the history of the universally recognized map of the world that is deeply rooted in colonialism and romanticization of the unknown – particularly in nature, geography, and ethnicity. Using a self-imposed system to ignore the image printed on the puzzle and by assembling the pieces according to their physical shapes, the map of the world is reconfigured. The assembly of the Map of the World is never to be completed; it will continue to transform.
More images will be added as the assembly progresses.
