7 Days of Making: Day Three

File_001

This map was a bit of a failure.

I wanted to reflect the screwed dynamics of food consumption in the US, particularly relating to the import of goods from other countries (in this case honey). I used a map I found which shows the world re-drawn in relation to the amount of green house gas emissions (a metaphor for consumption of all kinds). I printed it out and drew over the top of it.

I took pictures from honey I found at the store and overlaid these on the map. However,the results are not very effective. This idea of mapping and re-mapping systems of value is something I want to explore further, but this attempt did not go far enough.
