Compo(-sites) (2007)


Site Specific Piece in London:

A tourist map was cut into 4 and manipulated so that the boundaries became the centre. By coincidence, new streets where formed, whereby two streets from two seperate map pieces joined onto one another. The joining of these streets was then the subject of this photographic work.


Composite streets from a de-re-constructed tourist map: 


CUT a tourist map into 4 equal pieces.

MANIPULATE their position- north west becomes south east etc.

PASTE

Following these intstructions results in:

An inverted map. 
New tourist sites. 
Composite streets made of two fused external boundaries.
Interior becomes exterior. 
Real, living, changing places.
