|Focused on the map has been making rapid progress to be viewed with a click of mouse controlled by a finger-the smallest unit of human body- once included the biggest part of world in it.
This map represents a track of fingerprint on the mouse pad.
Hard working fingers find all the information you can imagine and rearrange them.
A track of fingerprint on the mouse pad could be a map of data about the magnitude of the universe or just of garbage.
What kind of map are you looking for? Lee Jang Sub|
This work is created by re-photographing a map of London (from the 1922 book ‘Wonderful London’). I made a new photographic print of the map and then working reductively with a scalpel created a personal map that applies to my own movements within the city. The compass rose points- where the lines converge- relate to my most common locations within the city (my home, studio, printer's etc.) Using a scalpel to remove the emulsion from the surface of the print, I removed all the other extraneous information from the original map.
