Matthew Picton: Paper Cities

Oregon-based artist Matthew Picton creates detailed three-dimensional maps of famous city grids using books, newspapers and other textual materials. Matthew engages with this tradition of humanising the city by deconstructing the clean, uncompromising aesthetic of the cartographic city plan and imbuing it with the unique history and culture of each place. Matthew says: "Some cities exist in the imagination more powerfully than others. I like to engage in specific events that cities have undergone as these are frequently the moments of pivotal change."
