Artist Nikki Rosato creates amazing sculptures of human figures by using old street maps people have tossed. She started out by cutting flat silhouettes out of maps, then progressed to this stunning 3D work that she creates by eliminating all of the landmasses from the maps. She then uses wire to guide the remaining roads and waterways into the shape she wants. The result is "ambiguous and hauntingly ghost-like," as she says in her artist's statement.
