Contemporary Artist Joy LI Creates Stunning Wool Rug

JOY LI, "A Spotted Bunny, Tangerine Peel, or Map of the World", 2021, Wool Rug, 8.2' x 5.7' 
   "Games are miniature worlds built in parallel to the real world. Meanwhile,  world maps are dissected by latitude and longitude lines, which flattened  the three-dimensional space and formed a two-dimensional miniature earth.  Turning the earth into a flattened map will necessarily involve some kind of  distortion. How we project the surface of the earth determines the shape  of the continents and oceans we see. There already exist many ways of  projection, to demonstrate the appearance and connections of the world as  accurately as possible. If you use different ways to peel a tangerine, you will  get different results. No one has done it wrong, because no one has done it  right." - Joy Li
