Luckily, my friends stay on the look out for cool map stuff also. I received a suggestion to blog about these atlas cutouts (Thanks A!). I think these art works are amazing: incredibly detailed and rather enchanting if you ask me. The cutouts are made by Claire Brewster, an artist from from Lincolnshire who lives in London. Brewster creates cutouts from old and neglected maps and she focuses on the presence of nature, even in urban areas. The cutouts form installations, either pinned to the wall or captured in box frames. The flora and fauna in Brewster’s work give a feeling of movement, because of the shadows of the cutouts when a light shines on them. Impressive map art!
