"Using my own technique inspired from traditional Asian marbled paper, I make maps. These maps are not geographical, but philosophical guides and directions. They are reproduced digitally with text included. The maps are in a long line on the floor surrounded with soil. Mixed in the soil is a large collage of cutouts from contemporary magazine articles and ads, representing consumer waste in the landfill. Binoculars are provided."
