Generative psychogeography http://socialfiction.org/psychogeography .walk http://www.socialfiction.org/dotwalk ***** 2) CRACKING THE URBAN CHEAT CODE about the psychogeogram of dordrecht "Perhaps the psychogeogram is nothing else than a current-day version of the mappea mundi; the medieval world map that mapped the physical realities of oceans & continents in one breath alongside all sorts of obscure information. These wonderful maps not only educated the viewer about the size of the earth but also about the seamlessly endless variety of shapes within it. A typical map could include ghosts, an imaginary bestiary & symbols of both Christian & pagan origin, that when viewed together took the form of a FAQ, answering every question any explorer could possibly have. As strange as this cartographical fantasia may seem today, it can't be denied that these maps conveyed a grasp of inclusive knowledge (not to mention a sense of adventure) that was lost as soon as the middle ages turned into something else. The unbounded exploration of the world that marked the renaissance, turned the cartographer from a teller of stories into the provider of the tools needed to keep up with overseas conquests. In a sense their maps were bolagrams too; meant to portray the new overseas boundaries of the western empires: but here borders depicted distinctions based on property & thus exclusion(7). By importing our bola- & emograms into the network cartography dataset, boundaries are not lines of exclusion, but vectorised ghosts that suggest movement & exploration. Ghosts that are as much an integral part of the map as once the griffon was of the mappea mundi." http://www.socialfiction.org/psychogeography/psychogeogram.html ===== http://www.socialfiction.org http://www.socialfiction.org/psychogeography http://www.socialfiction.org/dotwalk http://dorkbot.org/dorkbotrotterdam __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
