Maps

| September 19, 2013

This artist is making a map of Manhattan out of all the hand-written directions he’s received from strangers. Got me thinking of an alternative SiNY map in which sites are re-imagined by our interviewees’ descriptions…

(and also a tag-web of words and phrases used that visualize a real topography of educational/pedagogical/other possibilities? What would that look like? I mean, like a real map. With terrain. We’ll definitely need compasses and scale.)
