The various aspects of the globe are shown in four circles on the map, so I've taken circles and used them for experimenting with ideas and for notes.
The top two are simplified versions of the world and a political map. I have memories of the political maps in the school atlas, and how those colours changed from one edition to another as world dominance changed. It reminds me now of a patchwork quilt.
The next circle is just a hand drawn sketch of the segments on the globe and ideas for development in needlework. The other information circle lists the inspiration sources and memories of maps at school.
The bottom circle on the left has been attached to the page. It is a simplified image of sea, sand, land, green land, and wooded areas. It's been made from scraps of fabric stuck onto paper as a collage, reminiscent of applique.
These ideas may or may not be repeated, but they have all gone to inform the process to the final piece. The final form has not yet been decided, but there are more ideas to develop on the next page.
