**/////1.Concept**

"Maps camouflaged as meats"
Mimetic Maps is an art-book which visualizes unexpected similarities between meats and maps. The objective of this work is to suggest a new perspective on the world map.

/// Finland sirloin steak
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) OpenStreetMaps CC 2.0 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.

/// An Finland Shabu-shabu
Using Finland’s map, I’ve also made representation of Shabu-shabu*. In Japanese supermarkets, you will see meat being sold like below.
*Shabu-shabu is a Japanese dish where you dip slices of meats and vegetables into a pot with boiling hot water.

This paper is a fine paper developed by an architect, Kijuro Yahagi. It is made for the purpose of establishing conflicting properties of texture with high texture and printability. I chose the paper because I thought that it is suitable for this work based on vivid red. Enjoy the harmony of the flesh's brilliant red and the feeling like your fingertips awakening.
