Machado’s Maps

João Machado: Spaghetti (2005); detail João Machado’s artwork includes map collages “made entirely with vintage maps,” he writes. “The people shown in [my] work are depicted in the maps of the region in which they are from. Sometimes the maps used are contrapuntal to the image depicted.” João’s site is flash-based; click on “Works on Paper,” then “Maps,” to view the map goodies.
