|Staple II Collage Series - 07|
When I was on my trip to the UK last year each night the three of us travelers would create collages. I had collected a bunch of site-seeing maps and I got the idea to create what I call map lace. I made it by cutting out the spaces between the streets. The result was delicate pieces of lace like ephemera. This led to another type of paper lace using a whole punch and maps. I ran out of the European map lace and so because I wanted something that sort of gave the same effect I used a hole punch to make the new map lace. You can see that type of lace above.
I like how this collage turned out. There is a story about this particular imagery which I will relate at another time. I call it Bathing With the Geishas. If I forget to tell it, remind me in a few weeks.
