New Internationalist Magazine // Detention Centre Map DPS // Issue Jan/Feb 2014

I was commissioned before Christmas to produce a map for double page spread that would be a satirical round up of the worlds detention centres, much like a website or guide book review giving them minus scores.

I took a antique map approach to this, the implication here being, migrants as explorers searching for a new/better world, with the sea monsters of the old maps replaced with metallic leviathans made of aspects of detention centres – these being the hazards they may encounter en-route.

This is a very interesting & terrifying issue and I highly recommend grabbing a copy of the magazine if you get the chance.
