"As a child I once dreamt that I opened the window and the sky was covered with maps. As if we were inside a terrestrial globe, lit up from the outside. I had this overwhelming sensation of beauty, which has followed me ever since. Maybe that's where my fascination with maps started."
Imaginary Maps are patterns created with inspiration from coastlines, topographic maps and other cartographic elements. The original patterns were printed on wallpaper lengths by Your Wallpaper, and displayed at the exhibition A Sense of Direction at Konsthantverkarna, Stockholm in 2012.
Prints can be ordered as posters or wallpaper lengths, or customized for a specific room or project. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested.

Each piece is unique, and not based on any actual countries or coastlines. They are imaginary islands, hand cut from several layers of colored sheet acrylic collected from all over the world, some of them vintage plexiglass from the 1950's. The ribbons are made from silkscreen printed and painted silk or cotton fabric.
