Map Anatomy from Shannon Rankin

I like this Map Anatomy concept from artist, Shannon Rankin.  Shannon is from California and now currently works and lives in Maine.  Here’s a quote from the artist regarding her interest in maps:

“Maps are the everyday metaphors that speak to the fragile and transitory state of our lives and our surroundings. Rivers shift their course, glaciers melt, volcanoes erupt, boundaries change both physically and politically. The only true constant is change.”

It’d be nice to see the topography of the maps relate a bit more to the actual anatomy, but nonetheless, the compositions are nice. For more map-inspired works and some geometric installations, check out Shannon’s website.
