Description

Produced as part of Hirsch’s “World Map Project.” where the series of maps reveals some of the epistemological, and, at times, material substructures that are intrinsic to geographical information. “Average Country” bears the image of a ‘world map’ but here the shape of each of the world’s countries is scaled to occupy the same relative area, which is then transformed into a transparent layer.

All layers are overlaid, making the centre of the image — which is shared by many countries — highly saturated in colour. Individual shapes are difficult to discern, yet this map’s uncertain borders and ambiguous shape can be understood to describe the territory of the ‘average country’.

Unlimited edition, stamped and initialed.
