The Miso New York Moon illustrations place images of the busy metropolis within a galactic shape. The imitation moon displays a spherical, dotted map of the region, enabling viewers of the piece to reinterpret their understandings of the big apple.

New York Moon has been made in association with Melbourne's Snow White show, an exhibition that displays white on white art work only. The piece entangles the concepts of dreaming and mapping, both of which can be seen here via the intricate lines and airy, ethereal qualities. The way in which paper is carved into is moreover indicative of sheer talent as the medium is delicate. It has however been dotted intricately, giving way to a pattern taken from New York's layout.
