GITAI DESIGN lab. - Postcard / Finland Sirloin

Product Description

Finland Sirloin Steak, one of main feature of the book, looks just like a raw sirloin steak. However, its shape is a trace of Finland ( mapdata (c) OpenStreetMaps2.0 CC-BY-SA). I’ve made lakes and rivers in Finland to look as though they’ve been covered in salt. The interesting thing about this work is how it presents a new perspective when it has been colored in red. Salted areas which are the lakes and rivers do really exist in the world.

**/////3.How was it made?**
Actually I manipulated map images to make them look like meat by using the maps which was selected. The rule to decide which actual map was just fit to my project thinking, was accorded to the outline of country-wide maps which was looked like a piece of meat that I considered.
