I have been playing around with some small maps – making them into a little zigzag book that can sit on a shelf or be tied up into a small 9 centimetre square package. For the basis of this work I’ve used a map that includes some salt lakes and a few features like wells or bores and there are tracks marked across the land. I’ve added my own interpretations of colours of the land and the dots of vegetation. I thought about how shadows move as the sun moves across the sky. I placed shadows of the vegetation on the left in the right hand panels, to the centre in the middle panel and to the right in the left hand panels. I hoped this might add some difference to each panel and perhaps give a suggestion of the sun moving across this vast land. The other impression I tried to give was that of the weird effect shadows have on your eyes out in the harsh light of the Western Australian landscape.
