Lordy Rodriguez: States of America

Take a road trip with Lordy Rodriguez, who re-mapped America. His decade-long project to systematically reconfigure the United States offers viewers a fresh new look at map-based drawing with a fantastical twist. None of the states in Rodriguez’s work reflect the geography that we find in a conventional map of the U.S. He also invented five new states: the Internet, Hollywood, Monopoly, Disney, and Territory. By establishing new landforms and borders, his hand-drawn maps provoke a sense of possibility.
