This is Our Freedom – a new piece that I made by transforming 2 maps from a vintage atlas.

It’s an atlas from the 1930’s and it’s fascinating because you can see the changing times written large on the map.

It is so fascinating to get a snap shot into the time when the map was made. It’s like time travelling. The world has changed and names have changed but borders remain the same.

These birds have escaped from the confines of the map to gain their freedom. They are now looking down at us wondering why we remain trapped within the borders we have created.
