MAPS CAMOUFLAGED AS TREE RINGS

The Mimetic Maps 2 art book is a new work of the series “Mimetic Maps” which is continuing the experimental mix of art and graphic design. Recording the process of how to simulate the topographic maps such as the well-known symbol of Japan: Mt.fuji to the colored tree ring patterns that everyone is familiar with. The unexpected similarities between tree rings and maps will be remarkable.

日本の山々の地形図を「年輪化」する

地形図の等高線を年輪に見立てて、木目の表情を再現しました。

目を離し、地図記号が読めないほど細かくなると、それらが年輪たちの表情(ノイズ)を醸し出します。高さで刻む等高線に刻まれた年輪の時間を数え、その標高に流れる悠久の時間を想像してみてください。
