Very interesting (Flash) "Map Making" project : http://situ.ca/mg/index.html "I am making maps in the awareness of the semiotic loads they carry, but with the intention of adding more subjective filtration, rather than reducing it. I am as interested in the individual mental map that the reader creates from the map as I am in the map itself." - Maija Graham
