Historically, Africa has tended to be misrepresented in maps. In the commonly used Mercator method of mapping a sphere (the Earth) onto a at plane (a map), countries further away from the equator are distorted and enlarged. Consequently, Africa is diminished and presented as smaller than it actually is. This work seeks to correct this misrepresentation by showing the continent in relation to something we associate as being large - the Moon. Both images are to the same scale and sized correctly relative to each other.
