Topo Magic, 2013
450 x 36’ terrazzo floor
Fabricator: Advance Terrazzo 

Anne Coe drew inspiration for her terrazzo floor from the colorful topographic maps she uses in hikes through the Arizona desert. Topographic maps graphically depict natural and man-made features of the land using contour lines. Applying a palette of eleven colors, she adopted the graphic stylization of “topo” maps to depict rivers, canyons, farm fields and mountains in a whimsical landscape of wiggling shapes and contours. 

Public Art project was commissioned by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program with Aviation percent for art funds.
