‘the map is not the territory’(Korzybski, 1931) 2015

Bus 192

The map-territory relation describes the relationship between an object and a representation of that object.
How accurate is that representation?
A map is an abstraction derived from something, or a reaction to it, is surely not the thing it self. The trap of perception that stands always between reality and us.
In a time that Google maps are our eyes and lead our steps. A time that we walk around being there but not. A time that we look at the city from above, a kind of voyeurism, an optical artifact. Where texturology assumes the narrative and the architectural figures of this dialectic draw in miniatures.
The representation of the bus 192 route is clash between the analogue medium that was used and the digital that we experienced everyday. Ironic. A photograph of a photograph. A representation of a representation. Ad infinitum.
