The article focuses on the colonial project of British sculptor Susan Stockwell. Today, an uneven distribution of wealth and power across the globe has caused many historians and cultural critics to suggest that there is little about the world that has progressed towards the postcolonial. Stockwell explores these themes, both in a historical and a contemporary context, in works fashioned out of the very materials of the colonial project like tea, coffee and rubber. Colonial expansion was based on trade, both the purchase and sale of objects and the appropriation of land. Stockwell's use of the map evokes many of these themes.
