MAPS CAMOUFLAGED AS MEAT

Mimetic Maps is an art-book which visualizes unexpected similarities between meats and maps. The objective of this work is to suggest a new perspective on the world map. 
Finland Sirloin Steak, one of main feature of the book, looks just like a raw sirloin steak. However, its shape is a trace of Finland. I have made lakes and rivers in Finland to look as though they’ve been covered in salt. 
The interesting thing about this work is how it presents a new perspective when it has been colored in red. Salted areas which are the lakes and rivers do really exist in the world.

肉に見立てて着色した世界地図

擬態する世界地図は世界地図を肉の視点で眺めるアートブックだ。紙面に描かれた肉のイラストレーションはすべて、地図をサンプリングしたものだ。例えばフィンランドの地図を赤く着色し、トレーとラベルを加えると、霜降りのサーロインのようにその表情が変わる。肉と地図という意外な偶然の一致を楽しんで見ていただければ幸いだ。
