Traverse Me: map for pedestrians
"Traverse Me is a map drawn by walking across campus with a GPS device to invite the viewer to see a different landscape to that which surrounds them. It questions the possibilities of where they are and inspires a personal reading of their movements and explorations of the campus. (...) I responded to the structure of each location and avoided walking along roads and paths when possible. The route was recorded with GPS technology and was walked in stages over the 300 hectare site."
Why do I blog this? interesting attempt to produce a different form of map. Interestingly, it exemplifies the performative nature of the GPS technology. The map is influenced by the structure of the locations, and, in return, it can influence movement.
