Black Atlas

Black Atlas is a collection of operational maps. It is a picture of human action on the globe. It builds from single historical events to human migration on a larger scale. Each drawn arrow marks a human action towards other people – an effort to control, rule, profit or  defend.

History is usually seen as a chain of events. Black Atlas is more like one big picture.

Set of maps in Kirjasto 10, Helsinki, summer 2014.
