Emma Johnson ia an artist who reconstructs maps and other found ephemera into artworks, cutting paths and layers to transform the originals into reconstituted and complex new objects. Collage, used as a thought process emerges as a stream of consciousness. Altered books are subverted and acquire an alternative dimension. Maps are rendered virtually unreadable as functional objects, but symbolically they suggest journeys (both geographical and artistic) and an almost obsessive attempt to communicate and pin down the streams of information and thought that characterise our lives.
