Publication Type:



University of Minnesota Design Institute, MN (2006)




Featuring 40 essays by U.S. and European historians, designers, cultural critics, geographers and social scientists, copiously illustrated with over 250 color images in extensive visual "gazetteers" ? including specially-commissioned portfolios by artists and designers ? ELSE/WHERE: MAPPING investigates:# how new technologies of navigation and location are emerging to chart "virtual" terrain such as social networks and online conversations# how these new mapping strategies borrow and reinvent metaphors adapted from the cartography of physical terrain, considered at various scales ? urban, regional, continental, global# how new modes of representation of spatial data are evolving to explore the potential for collective "bottom-up" (rather than "top-down") mapping# how cities, communities and social networks are being re-envisioned, as artists and designers use technologies such as GPS, GIS and digital interface design to devise alternative mappings of social and spatial relationships.AUTHORSJanet AbramsOle BoumanAndrea CodringtonDenis CosgroveSteve DietzPaul EllimanYuri EngelhardtPeter HallBrian HolmesJ.J.
