Lighthouses

From the lighthouses. Felt tipped pen drawings on Icelandic maps. 56 x 52 cm each.

The drawings are based on Icelands position between the continents: from the South coast it is possible to sail in a straight line across the sea all the way to Antarctica. I illustrated this by playing around with scales and navigation sign from maritime maps. In the corners of the maps there are close ups of key locations within the Svarte Faen deck of cards-narrative.
