Commonly perceived as objective representation of reality, maps are in fact arbitrary projections. A map does not show the reality, what is shows is the culture and the values of the context in which it was made. By choosing what to show, what to include, what to exclude, what to emphasize, and how to visually represent the information in the map, the cartographer creates a specific aspect of reality , and ultimately impacts its cultural context. CARTOGRAPHIES looks for, develops, creates and features alternative maps and values they represent.
