Circumfluere, March 2015
Joint piece – Lorna Milner Johnson (nee Barrowclough) & Hondartza Fraga
Circumfluent means flowing around, surrounding. Circumfluere is the original Latin verb, literally ‘to float about’.
“This work combines two ideas: Hondartza’s design of a world’s ocean map, and Lorna’s collages made out of the sea areas of old maps. The collage is composed from photos of old maps taken by the artists. The map presents a view of all the world’s seas as one unique mass of water, the land is omitted, only the coastline remains as one continuous edge to the body of water.”
Materials: Laser cut mdf, photo collage
