Pattern of the World

Date: 2000

Measurements: 320 x150 x3 cm

Description: Here on show in the exhibition 'Mapping the Imagination' at the Victoria & Albert Museum 2006. Main Image ©V&A.

Material: dress making patterns, tea, coffee, pins & glue

Provenance: V&A Museum London

Notes: A World map stained onto various dress making patterns with tea and coffee. Patterns pinned together to form a Mercator projection of the world. See detail images for references to map accuracy, such as 'shorten or lengthen here' near the African continent referring to the inaccuracy of the colonial projection, which makes Africa much smaller than it really is and Europe and the USA much larger.
