There seems to be a lot of good work coming out of Australia at the moment, Lilian Liem has just finished her third and final year of graphic design at Monash University in Melbourne. Pictured is ‘Lost in Tokyo’, a conceptual mapping project, hand drawn with felt markers on paper.
‘Losing yourself in an unknown culture can be one of the most unique stories your life has to tell. I wanted to map my experience of travelling to Tokyo for the first time as accurately as I could, to convey the initial bombardment of confusion of a different culture, which after some time began to make sense as my journey unfolded. A map like this should represent Tokyo more accurately than a conventional map, as I found, could not chart how dynamic a city it really is.’
