MAPPING AS A CREATIVE PRACTICE
The vision of the project is grounded on the critical evaluation of ethics and politics of urban mappings and data representations. I argue that mapping is not only a technique to visualize information, but it also requires a theory-driven design process. In line with this argument, this project presents mapping as a design tool to form a new spatial network. A set of algorithmic rules (Overlapping, Additive Inverse, Distortion) is diagrammed in a hierarchical order, from simple to complex. is diagram is used in the “design process” of maps by transforming their 2D character into spatial abstraction.
