Off Course: A Creative Exploration Of Cartography, Cuisine, And Narrative
MetadataShow full item record
Off Course is a fictional compilation of thirteen maps with an underlying thread of food. This series of maps was created as if each were designed by a different person and compiled by a fictional editor character whose background in traditional cartography informs an emotional journey of his own.. It is a work that challenges the definition of a map and what a map represents. It also explores how the decisions of what to include on a map can create a story. This exploration is achieved with maps that push the boundaries of form, such as a text-based map and maps that play with scale, by mapping emotion, memory, and, ultimately, narrative. Each map has an accompanying introduction by the fictional editor.
