The Geography department had boxes of maps formerly used for exams within the UK school system. I had been seeing them around the art department but the pure delight of discovering hundreds of these geographical way finders was huge. Looking back, these drawings feel tentative which was a direct mirror of how I was feeling a month into lockdown, where things started to make less and less sense. I didn’t know where I was going to live, work or Be so what I was searching to create was calm, order and beauty.
I found my way, and a year later I have formatted the map drawings, eager to make more whenever I am reunited with my map stash.
