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?
