The designs in some circular doilies are reminiscent of the Polar Coordinates system; this seemingly random connection between the two subjects serves in this drawing to force a dialogue between the domestic and the abstract reality of maps. A broken doily which missing fragments mark the outline of the arctic region. Mappa comes from Mappa Mundi, a general term used to describe medieval European maps of the world. The term derives from the Medieval Latin words mappa (cloth or chart) and mundi (of the world), literally ā€˜sheet of the world.ā€™
