map as art

maps are impartial documents of the geographic reality. they are powerful visual tools which inform, educate and  impress.  nevertheless,  like paintings, they are always made by a certain point of view and have their own agenda.  in art, maps are frequently seen as a medium of expression and are used to explain, critique, subvert, re-imagine or redefine the contemporary world. in this series, cartography is used to express the personal impressions of certain cities, depicted in the colors they recall
