Maps, nests, economics



For whosoever has plenty, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even what he has.

- Matthew 13:12

Maps are simply a visual representation of the demographic resources of an area. The larger nests contain more maps or more resources and the smaller ones not being as fortunate. The large central map nests are being wound from a series of smaller nests that surround it. Many people read it as the smaller nests as having been spawned from the larger ones, but actually it is the opposite, I am not sure how to install it so that becomes clear. This is a comment on wealth and the economic struggles that create even a larger monetary divide between the rich and the poor.
