About this artwork
Architect Malkit Shoshan creates maps that help users understand the social, cultural, and political characteristics of a given location in addition to its physical attributes. Shoshan borrows from the rules and conventions of traditional atlases, but adds new information through graphs, statistics, and photographs. In Atlas of the Conflict: Israel-Palestine , data about resources, infrastructure, land regimes, and borders take on added significance as she uses the maps to narrate the ongoing struggle in the Middle East. The book was designed in collaboration with graphic designer Joost Grootens.
