Flying Cartography

Claire Brewster lives in London and uses old and out of date maps and atlases as her fabric with which to create her intricate, delicate and detailed cut outs. The cut-outs are pinned either directly on to the wall as a large scale installation or captured in box frames. The shadows created when light is shined on them gives them a 3 dimensional quality and creates a feeling of movement.

Now you know what to do with your old maps. Or you could send them off to Claire to use. :)
