Georgina Parker dissects maps to create intricate cartographic artworks

“My work stems from an interest in the way we, as humans, understand our environment through map making.”

“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.”
