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 ‘sheet of the world.’
