, an artist, has created some new maps by putting together a collage of old ones. The result are maps that, at first glance, are familiar but on closer inspection are odd and unusual. She has a collection of such collages on her website, most of which are not at a high enough resolution to read, unfortunately. The page runs in Flash so click on Work > Collages to get to the maps.
Layla Curtis has undertaken another project, “Message in a Bottle
” in which she inserted messages and GPS units in bottles with the hopes of them reaching the nearest inhabited place on the opposite side of the world to Ramsgate, England. So far, the furthest venturing bottle has gotten to the Netherlands. You can follow their progress on the project’s website
. This project was also mentioned in Else/Where: Mapping
