Sandy Island

For ages, Sandy Island appeared on cartographic maps, from nautical charts, all the way to google maps.
It wasn’t until the year 2012 that a group of Australian scientists, confirmed, that this island does not exist. It remains unknown how Sandy Island(or Sable Island-as it was named in “The Times” world atlas) found its way onto the maps.
There are speculations, that it never existed.

In my work I wanted to demonstrate, that its traces are embedded in history.
I used the finds and photographs from a real island, print screens from Google Maps as well as old maps to create a new history, based on the original story.

Could there exist a more enticing, utopian island than one, that may have never even existed?
