Jerry Gretzinger: Mapping the Void. A fascinating short film, also picked up by many others.
Trap Rooms →
An interesting article about deliberately introduced cartographic errors, created in order to catch those infringing copyright. It has long been practised, but I guess has gained currency recently as we seem to live in times where everybody seems to assume they can have everything for free (another disastrous economic model waiting to implode in the future)—or pay a pittance. The example shown...
Ring Roads of the World →
An interesting poster by Thumb, perhaps more for its artistic effect as its informational one.
Migration of Mel & Judith →
As shown on the Culture Show, the work of architect, Thomas Hillier.
Sound Sculptures →
More interesting work by FIELD.
When the outcome drives the process we will only ever go to where we’ve...– Bruce Mau
Giles Revell: Environment →
One of a series of prints considering the conflict between environment and urban/industrial development with found natural objects.
Geocontext Profiler →

Worldflag System →
Thanks again roomthily, good find! I like the discipline in the construction of this map.
Delaunay Raster →
Tool assisted Delaunay image vectorization using Scriptographer and Color Averaging by Jürg Lehni. The triangulation is like that used in land survey, and 3D terrain construction.
Cities and Objects →
Exhibition which related to the process of city growth and expansion to doodling with existing structures.
