This is a new collage I am working on. I haven’t decided where to go next or whether I may even be done. It is a part of Asia, a place I have never been and may never go. Who knows. It is part of the new map series I have started. Some maps I create myself and some works are created from existing maps. Maps can be made to depict so many things. With this one I was contemplating the enormity of our world and how little of it I am likely to see in my lifetime. I compared the size of Massachusetts, the state in which I have lived the majority of my life, to the area contained in the map used for this piece. It is a fraction of the size. Yet, interestingly, I have probably not even seen all of Massachusetts. There are towns and areas I know I haven’t explored. Strange isn’t it? I’ve been to Rome, Italy, but not to Dudley, MA. Okay, so Dudley may not be an exciting destination, but it’s a lot closer to where I live. Just musings on the world and our place it.
