Year: 2019

Materials: Canvas, painted, heat shrunk plastic, newspaper, thread

Dimensions: 170 x 95 cm

Image Statement: I experimented with various materials to find an earth-like one, when I found painted, heat shrunk plastics appealing for this purpose. I combined it with one of my earlier netted city-maps that were distressed in a fast running steam. The fragmented street networks seemed to emerge from the profounds.
