Vintage atlas pages, acrylic crystals on canvas
58 x 78cm
A collection of original, vintage atlas pages and acrylic crystals arranged on painted canvas with a cut three-dimensional element. The work is mounted behind glass within a dark brown, wooden frame.
Selected sections have been cut from 1960 atlas pages; the political history of the time evident in the country names and borders.
Swarovski crystals have been placed on towns and cities within the sunken circles, drawing inspiration from the glowing population centres seen in photographs of earth taken from space at night.
