Maps of the Imagination

“We chart our cities, so we chart ourselves. To chart the external world is to reveal ourselves – our priorities, our interests, our desires, our fears, our biases. We believe we’re mapping our knowledge, but in fact we’re mapping what we want – and what we want others – to believe. In this way, every map is a reflection of the individual or group that creates it.” – Pete Turchi, pg 146
