Starting with a big stack of secondhand maps of the UK, I've repeatedly printed over them - building up multiple layers of symbols and imagery.
There's new towns - fed with fresh food from the adjacent greenhouses, acres of forests and orchards, thousands of wind turbines, I've built hundreds of museums,
art galleries, bookshops, libraries and reopened Post Offices but there's also surveillence cameras everywhere...
"everybody's mapping nowadays"
is simultaneously idealistic and practical, decorative
and critical.Plus there's Alien visitations, Geodesic dome clusters, flower
bombing, symbol salad and logo clutter, buried treasure and easter eggs.
Screenprinted by hand with hand-drawn elements, laserprint and stickers, each copy is slightly different.
