Dymax-Redux

 

This beautiful woodcut map, using the Dymaxion projection developed by Buckminster Fuller in 1943, won the Dymax Redux competition held by the Buckminster Fuller Institute in 2013. The Dymaxion projection unwraps the globe to show the Earth’s continents as being nearly contiguous, and avoids the infamous distortions of size and shape of many other projections. The map shows no geographical boundaries, and is reversible, as Buckminster Fuller famously proclaimed this map: “There is no up or down in the Universe, only in or out.” The different colored woods represent percent forested land. A perfect idea for a woodcut. Anyone else want this for a wall in their office/house? Congratulations to the winners for their brilliant design! 271.jpg (5400×3600).
