Since Christmas i have been working alot with paper, and focusing on continuing the work i was doing with maps. Initially i was working inside AtoZ's, cutting out the spaces 'between the lines', but this became problematic, because the sheets were double sided and so only one side made sense and it no longer worked as a book. After this i began creating them on plain white paper, i liked this effect because although you can tell it is a map, its difficult to tell exactly what or where its from, also the plain white makes the likes look more delicate and 'web like'. To present this work i've currently used black frames, with the pieces raised away from the wall, to create intricate shadows behind the pieces, however this is still a work in progress and i am going to carry on exploring the piece, and experiment with how to present it.
