Nina Katchadourian: System Artist

"World Map" -- Nina Katchadourian
This piece was created by cutting up a map of the world and piecing it back together in a different configuration. At first glance nothing looks amiss -- familiar shapes, familiar colors = typical world map -- but after a closer look, you realize this map is different. Attending to details gives more meaning and expression than just looking for simple symbols, like in our face drawings from class.
