America, As Imagined by an 18 Year Old Girl- Nicole Anderson
This map serves as an exploration of how reality matches up with our perceptions of reality. The map is based upon how the artist believes the United States of America to look, without any reference. Fabric laser cut into accurate representations of the states and are sewn to conform to how the artist imagined them to be. The map forces reality and our flawed perceptions of reality into the same space. Darker colors represent states that the imaginer feels “confident” of the geography of, while the lighter colors denote states with which she is less familiar.
