Artwork Description

I am a cartographer drawing maps for fun.
My job it's to reproduce a part of the reality.
I can't redraw the world but I build paths to follow,
I constellate the paper of arrows, colors and symbols,
to mark the land's frontiers or the stars of the sky,
pointing the limits of a world without borders.

When I show my map, people have a strange reaction,
They look at the map and it turns into a mirror !
They tell me a story... their stories.. their childhood...
They say I build the world exactly like their world,
Adding that I have the power to create dreams with my work.
It's really funny because for me, it’s just a map,
my vision of the world.
