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.

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。

地形圖等高線「擬態」年輪,呈現空想的木質表情。通過仔細觀察木紋細部,「木紋」中隱藏的小信息讓您瞭解到這是山峰等高線地形圖。地形圖參考真實年輪切片著色之後,作為自然物的年輪而表現出的緻密情境,是本作的最大特徵。希望您對於作為自然物的年輪的觀感,也可以通過本作產生不同的視角有契機「擬態」成為名峰地形圖。
