Stock Description

"ELSE/WHERE: MAPPING "charts the ascendancy of mapping as a powerful interdisciplinary strategy, one that links people and places, data and organizations, and physical and virtual environments. Traditionally written by history's victors, maps are gaining new currency in our information-saturated age as a means of making arguments and processes visible. Mapping technologies today are as diverse as the agendas driving them: social networks are mapped with dynamic digital interfaces; buildings are mapped with lasers; cities and regions are mapped by satellite.
Illustrated with nearly 300 images, from archival woodcuts to Web-based maps and GPS drawings, "ELSE/WHERE: MAPPING" explores how cartographic techniques are being adapted to map the emerging landscapes of electronic communication. It showcases cutting-edge projects in graphic and industrial design, art, architecture, and technology by an international roster of writers, artists, and designers at the forefront of locative media practice. "
ELSE/WHERE: MAPPING" proposes--by visual example and written analysis--that mapping is a fundamental design process that increasingly shapes the physical and conceptual dimensions of contemporary society.
Deborah Littlejohn (designer) is design fellow at the University of Minnesota Design Institute.
Distributed for the University of Minnesota Design Institute by the University of Minnesota Press.
