Map-Made Animals

{SummaryTitle}

A mathematician by trade, Jason LaFerrera has begun to dabble in art, and not just any typical forms of art. At first glance, his art pieces may seem like deceptively simple collages, but they were created out of digitally-manipulated maps. Look closely and you’ll be able to see street details.

Through ornithology and cartography, Jason LaFerrera manipulates man’s documentation of nature to create nature. It’s rather poetic, as the artist explains: “The patterns of forests and shores often become an animal’s feathers or fur, while the rings of topography often trace out wings or antlers.”
