Inspired by the conversations of the first D+arty Monkeys Darty_Monkeys#Virtual_roundtable_09.2F10.01.16 Global Virtual Hangouts on 9 January 2016, we found a common thread. Unmapping.
While mapping immediately conjures associations (matrix operations, physical maps, cartography, GPS tracking, ...) we would like to turn mapping around to ask what it can be.
These are the beginnings of brainstorms. More soon...
- Sachiko - my interest is to deconstruct the ideas of mapping around the BIODESIGN for the REAL WORLD project
This is a process to define what unmapping as a process could be
Some directional questions in our minds:
- how could mapping be if we removed the anthropocentric perspective?
- what if north is not north?
- what is a map if it comes from rememberance?
