Topographic maps - Looking for the Ursa Major

2016
silkscreen prints with self-made earth ink
7 prints 50 x 70 cm

Topographic maps of the seven locations of our journey, tracing the projection of the Ursa Major star constellation on earth. At each location, we collected some earth. These samples are later transformed into printable ink by adding water to the fine particles of earth. The obtained ink is used to silkscreen a series of seven topographic maps, pairing each ink to each location.
