Reminiscent of a Jackson Pollock painting, this world-map seems to present a fluid, colourful, boundary-less, almost; happy world. Pollock in his efforts wanted an end to the viewer's search for representational elements in his paintings, and wrote that "what was to go on the canvas was not a picture but an event. The gesture on the canvas was a gesture of liberation from value — political, aesthetic, moral." Hmmm, that's pretty deep for some messy paint splatters, but if you like this, you can purchase your own image on canvas  and ponder its greater meaning.
