Both items have additional maps printed on the other side and a very short text: Landlocked, yet flowing to the sea. Made at the invitation of artist Alice Austin for a performance in Venice, Italy, these maps refer to the state of Iowa a landlocked location but bordered by two large rivers, the Mississippi and the Missouri that flow to the ocean and in this instance on to Venice an island city. The origami boats are waxed with beeswax for protection during their launch into the waters flooding San Marco Plaza in Venice. Edition of 18"--Catalog description.
