THE HANGING PROCESS



6 square meters is quite

a large surface and 1mm difference on one other side. Especially if the wall is not perfectly even. And as I FIRST TRY: I bought 12 pieces of so called to hang up mirrors. Even with very accurate measurement it was not SECOND TRY: super magnets! It sounds great, you just mount super magnets on your wall and they will attach to the already glued on Haftblech on the prints. But, unlike with screws, there will still be enough room to just push the prints a little to the left and a little to the right until they fit together. The first attempt failed: 6 right. THIRD TRY: while the super magnets in general worked as expected

I boards was not perfectly even. I became afraid that over time the differences would become bigger and the only way to prevent this would be to attach both boards on one single frame. I called a company specialized in framing. They glued a framework of 4 metal racks on the back so now the two parts of the world map are together for good. Unfortunately the company underestimated the size of the map and the therefore needed stability. Only two weeks after they installed the damage. They needed to come two

more times until the problem was fixed and the most annoying fact was their attitude and lack of the back of the map.] The invisible frame on the back of the map. it. Two times. Not included: lots of super magnets and Haftblech. Do I really want to partly destroy this beautiful print by putting pins in it? I thought for a while about that and: yes, I definitely do. By customizing it, it finally becomes my own, very personal map.

THE PRINTING PROCESS



print something very detailed. The combination though is difficult, especially if you ask the printing shop for only one copy. An offset printing press would give you the best result,

however, you ten print shops I asked for advice, only five got back to me; four I found the solution by chance: Walking back from errands I passed by a small print shop just around the corner from home. The two extremely amazing job in helping me with it. The data file was almost in a square format. To fit it into the valuable information anyway. the map into two pieces. This division was actually not perfectly centered, on purpose: The cut was made along a vertical line with as much ocean as possible. This way, it was easier to put two parts together without a noticeable seam. show: Glossy is not a good idea.] The test prints show: Glossy is not a

good idea. We did two test prints, one on Canon Photo Paper in glossy, one on matte print. I decided against the glossy one since it would reflect light in a very annoying way. We printed the 1,25 Gigabyte data file in two sheets with an fonts are perfectly readable and clear. The canyons and mountain ranges look so good you almost feel the depth and heights. And the colors are just perfect. I decided not to apply any protective lacquer. This means that my printed map will be prone to damage from any liquid, but

as soon as I would apply any chemical to make it more secure it would also become a bit more blurry. An unacceptable trade for me. COSTS: 329,- Euro for the two prints, including test prints and cutting the digital file.

THE RESEARCH



The online research was done quite quickly: even very specialized * Either the size I was looking for was just not available; * or the detail level and the format were great, but instead

of the world the map only showed one continent. My offline research was also not very successful. I visited many specialized map stores in three different countries and several people confirmed what I already guessed: There is just no market for detailed world maps of this size. So no other option was left but to do it myself. time.] So many places. So little life time.

PROLOGUE



I love world maps. Since my earliest childhood I have been fascinated by all the foreign-sounding names on them. Back in that time it was unthinkable that I would ever see any of these places. Now, many years later, I am now lucky enough to have

the opportunity to travel to many different countries and I sadly realized that this planet is not nearly as big as I hoped when I was a kid. However, the fascination for maps has stayed. I still love to follow for many years my kitchen map has been a daily reminder of how fascinating this world is.

THE FRAMING PROCESS



material. The owners of the

printing shop recommended a guy who is KAPA is basically a sandwich of two cardboards with foam in between. A light but stable material and great to put pins in it. The art of plastering: gluing two 3 square meter paper sheets so precisely on the KAPA boards that they fit together when hung next to each other. He did a great job, was grumpy as expected and the delivered boards smelled like cigarettes for two days. COSTS: 399,99 Euro for the plastering and delivery by truck.

FUTURE PROJECTS AND IDEAS



Light is an issue, this part of the room is

too dark to read the good solution yet. Another potential feature is a projector. Mounted on the other side of the room it would make it possible to show all kind of overlays. of tweets or Facebook status updates of my friends? Visualizing the actual benefit are probably limited to telling my friends what that in a different context this could be amazing.
