Maps are a way of organising topography. Buildings, motorways, rivers, forests, categorised and aligned along the grids and contours. In this project I allow the organised nature of the OS map to be reinterpreted by chance. The map is left in the garden under wood and stones. After several days the map becomes soggy and attracts small slugs and snails that eat away at the paper. The result is a map full of small holes - these holes become markers for the locations that I photograph. This process is intended as a playful rejection of the typical grandeur of land art. Each object photographed in its location is site specific, relating in some way back to its place.
