Catalina Island lies off the United States coast of California. It is a sparsely populated, rocky island and measures 35km (22 miles) long by 13km (8 miles) across its widest point. In the 1920s Catalina began to be successfully developed as a tourist destination by chewing gum magnate William Wrigley Jr.

This piece shows the island in its entirety and the surrounding Pacific Ocean. The multiple layers of the sea depth is highlighted in what appears as a ripple-effect and is accentuated by surround lighting. On the right-hand side the compass rose extends off the edge of the chart, duplicating the curve of the island’s south east end.
