Description

The "Not To Scale - Mapping Memories in Colour" collection represents the first 12 of 29 locations that Peta has lived. Each piece is a map showing the road and position of the house.

The smaller rectangular shape depicts the third house Peta lived in and she was there for a short period of time. The object melting, at the top of the section represents her gold brooch, which was engraved with “Peta”. It is melting as she was hot with fevers and her first of several febrile convulsions. Cot bars are shown, like canvas #2, and a baby footprint with a map as she was almost walking. She was growing up just like the big green arrow. The larger section to the right, representing the street, displays a road network with land parcels in three chosen colours, inspired by a photo of the house. The road network was inspired by a Sales Plan Peta drafted in the early 00’s. The canvas is oriented with North at the top and stencilled on the side is the exact location of the house in the form of latitude and longitude coordinates.
