A tribute to the wide open spaces that have always been my solace. In a hectic world when every moment is vouched for, sometimes you need to take some time for yourself and find a calm open space uninterrupted by the human hand.

I started to explore how I could replicate this sense of space and calm by means of perspective lines and repetitive cartographic symbols.
