Mr Monkey in London, 11th January

"There's a wide range of map-based artistry"

The Mapping the Imagination display included maps of imaginary places, bizarre maps of real places and artistic re-inventions of maps. Mr Monkey examined early tube maps, and a map of London with only the street names in, and maps of the UK and the world made of tea bags. He studied E.H. Shepard's original map of the Hundred Acre Wood and wondered if Cornelia Parker ever set her house on fire dropping tiny hot meteorites on maps to make pieces like Meteorite Misses Waco, Texas.
