Maps camouflaged as meats

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.
