Ceaseless Doodle, 2009

wall drawing
320×320 cm

This work includes all the national borderlines in the world. To make it, the borderlines of all the countries in the world were printed on A4-size pieces of paper, thus equalizing the territorially smaller countries such as Luxembourg with territorially larger countries such as Canada or China. These images were drawn on transparent papers, scanned into a computer, then projected and traced onto a wall and drawn on one another. The effect is of an intricately interwoven orb of the world, a seemingly aimless “globe” scribble that is actually composed of precisely drawn borderlines.
