Mixed media, collage, drawing and painting techniques were employed to create this artwork depicting a land mass or map. Intead of roads, however, a few details of the landscape itself is shown on this map – signifying how every landscape is made up of all its disparate pieces – each ecology containing several elements and living organisms that contributes to the whole. The road sign is added as symbol to remind us that we should slow down when driving through the land, and notice the details and nuances around us.
