Maps are a long standing interest of mine and I decided to use this interest as a vehicle for
experimentation. This map was cut, folded, scanned, and edited, the final result looking like urban sprawl.
I enjoyed that cutting, folding, and editing the maps changed their meaning. I decided to explore my personal identity as a first generation Czech American through this medium.
My map combines two maps: one of Czech Republic and one of the United States. When woven together, the final map represents me more than either do on their own, since I am not fully either culture.
