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 black background is representative of Aphantasia, a condition that Peta has, that means she is unable to visualise.

The rectangular shape to the left is the eighth place Peta lived and it was a caravan. The family were traveling around Australia. There were stripes on the caravan and the under-seat storage box, depicted in orange, was filled with clothes and toys. They settled for a short time at this location as Peta’s Dad had found a grape picking job. The location was near a big river and a bridge joined two towns across the border where daylight savings allowed extra shopping time. A fun park with Humpty Dumpty was a good memory and symbolised by the wall in the road section to the right. Colour were inspired by surrounding vineyards. The pattern of thick coloured lines is indicative of a contour map. 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.
