Large World Maps

The control and presentation of information is a very important part of cartography. Removing location names or re-introducing the forgotten landmass of Antarctica, which is remote and politically neutral, invites the viewer to reconsider her or his perception of the world map. It is a mode of decolonization and recontextualization by erasure and renaming. It is also an invitation to let the imagination create an alternative potential reality.
