This project includes multiple art works using several media. Flounder Lee : "For the last several years, I have been mapping interactions between indigenous peoples and various governments...I traveled to Europe, Panama, St Martin, and many other locations where I transposed antique maps onto locations and then photographically mapped them. I mapped American colonies onto Europe and European borders onto the colonized countries...Many other parts of the world were colonized at various points by Europeans and I map these in an ongoing part of the project...Through all of this I seek to illuminate a history that has been sanitized and distorted." More can be found in Flounder's Portfolio (see below).
