The outline of a world map stands-in for a constellation. The 88 constellations that are used in astronomy today use mythology to remember the positioning of the stars through the use of stories. This notion of mythology and storytelling is significant, the world map constellation that is presented here convenes thoughts around cultural history, geography and politics. In this scenario, in the absence of a planet earth, the shapes and outlines of the land mass is now mythlogical. Plastic bottles stand in for lakes and rivers. I used google maps as a reference to depict the bodies of water that are visible from space.

The panels are each 153 cm x 92 cm.
