Precariously Perched is an art installation that was exhibited as part of graduating show for MFA at Concordia University.
In this installation I balance twisted strips of maps on tiny pins that stick out from the wall.
This installation is about balance and being delicate and fragile.
During the installation maps would fall to the ground. Viewers had to be cautious around the installation or more maps would fall.
The maps were installed to represent a horizon line or a long line of a meandering trail. I wanted viewers to walk by the piece and see that their movement would cause the strands of twisted maps to also move.
I would love to install this work on a larger scale with even more maps in the future!
