Personal Map Project

If biases exist in popular maps, these same biases are reflected in the manner in which we move and experience our world.
-Nato Thompson from the book Experimental Geography: radical approaches to landscape, Cartography, and Urbanism

Hey! It's a psycho-geographical, counter-cartography, map-making project! We thought it would be interesting to see how different people interpret and visualize their spaces, where biases exist, the symbols and language they would use, the areas they would leave out, and how their spatial practices would be expressed within their personal cartography. They illustrated their lives, favorite spots, routes and sites to share their environments with us.
