Here's your chance to get a view of Lake Michigan from your bedroom, no matter where you live in the city. Using four different layers of cardstock, artist Marnie Karger creates free-form topographical representations of Lake Michigan completely by hand. There's even a tiny star at the bottom, so that you know exactly which part of the lake to call your own. Unless you prefer to frame it and pretend the entire body of water's all yours.
