Project Description:
Imagine an evolutionary cartography system that instead of mapping cities and neighborhoods, it's mapping all known movements of contemporary art and their respective influencers. This "arbitrary" topography is based on the WikiProject - Contemporary Art, a section of Wikipedia dedicated to gather content on Contemporary Art, one of Wikipedia's comparatively weakest subject areas. It highlights all artistic proclamations indexed from the 1960s until nowadays. The final result of this evolutionary cartography is a large horizontal poster, measuring 90 cm (35.4 in) by 5 meters (196.9 in).

As stated by the authors on their website: "This cartography is an intermediate or transitory place, the reflection of a world in building site. A country lane growing towards a hypertrophied urban environment."
