So I read about “Hitchhikers” last week and was inspired to make my own. I took a piece of scrap wood I found on the street and glued a tessellated aerial photograph of the exact in which it is hanging. Within the photograph there are two arrows pointing to the exact same location but only one is the geographically correct location. This creates a cartographical paradox of being at two places at once, which we all know is impossible. Or is it?
I am excited about challenging the actual definition of what defines a street map. Is it a map of streets that you use when driving? Or a map seen while walking down the street? Or a way to get lost?
