"Rethinking maps"; http://www.rgs.org/category.php?Page=ac2006 "Over the past 20 years there has been a sustained engagement in rethinking the ontological basis and epistemology of cartography. This has led to such conceptual frameworks as: maps as social constructions, post-representational cartography, non-confessional cartography, non-progressive histories of cartography, de-ontologized cartography, denaturalized cartography, critical cartography, counter-mappings and performative mapping." : http://www.rgs.org/ac2006 Cartographic 'remixability' (Manovich 2005).

Dada was an art movement that was ostrasized from the world of art as it swept through the world like war sweeping thoughout nations. Dadaism brought about everything new: new ideas, new materials, new directions, and new people. Dada had no uniform characteristics as many other movements in the arts have. Dadaist art can be interpreted by each person how they want to see or read it. Dadaism brings out feelings and emotions in each person dependent upon what he or she is going through at the time.
Art historians who are professionally trained to analyze the styles of art movements and periods have been continually baffled by the contradictions and complexities Dadaism poses towards itself. All those who attempt to analyze the Dadaist movement, to figure out it's breadth and depth all seem to come up short. The meaning and content go far beyond that which can be analyzed by a trained professional.
Dadaism is often mistaken as a myth due to the outrageous and ridiculous ideas put into the art, however it was very real. Dadaism was never expected to last forever, the Dadaists lived in the moment and for the moment, and so did the spirit of Dada. This beautiful form of art is no longer widely practised throughout the world, yet it is still greatly appreciated by many.
