"SOFT MAPS - is a new project made in collaboration with @lilymccraith and hosted by @dervierteraum !! Check out our web-based art piece yourself...
"Soft maps attempts to re-build tools for navigation and orientation by looking at mapping through an alternative lens. Here, a swimming pool is our working model, and the act of cleaning the pool becomes an algorithm for mapping. We explore how tools and presence shape maps, forming a multi-perspective map & score that questions conventional cartographic practices. It matters which maps map maps.
What kind of maps get to shape our world?
Who gets to build these maps and who they are built for ?
Working with our nonhuman collaborators we create localised cartographies which challenge the territories or narratives that maps claim to represent.
