A sewing machine is used as a drawing tool to impregnate the surface of old fabric backed ordnance survey maps, to trace over road routes and rivers in the map.
It can be said that '...much information can be gathered from the gaps left in maps, not least about the map-maker’s intentions. This is one of the beauties of maps.’
In these works, the identity of the map physically becomes ‘unpicked’ bysubverting the way the map is 'read' with the reverse of the map as a blank canvas to imprint. The gaps left in these maps becomes the metaphorical space to explore a new landscape.
