Jeffrey Allen Price, a multi-media and interdisciplinary installation artist based in New York, has created a myriad of maps using a very unorthodox material: used sponges. Since he used a large collection of the common kitchen product, each piece ranges in color and texture, resulting in something quite akin to a patchwork quilt.

Currently, Jeffrey Allen Price has created maps of the world as a whole, Manhattan, the United States and even one for Japan to raise money for the tsunami and earthquake relief effort. Jeffrey Allen Price was initially inspired to create a U.S.A. map out of used sponges, stating, "It was a kind of metaphor for American being used up and dirty. I wanted every sponge to be different." Stats for Sponge-Made Maps Trending: Older & Average
