Up-Cycled Sponge Maps by Jeffrey Allen Price

Multi-media artist Jeffrey Allen Price creates elaborate geographical maps constructed using kitchen sponges. Inspired by Jean Dubuffett, Price began utilizing used sponges to create different maps with each sponge representing a county or country. “I started accumulating them and have had the idea for many years to make a U.S. map out of used sponges." Jeffrey says, "It was a kind of metaphor for American being used up and dirty. I wanted every sponge to be different. When I go to the grocery store to replenish my sponges I look for different colors, patterns, textures that once I’ve finished using would become my latest creation.”
