Abstracting the map


Tung studio in Toronto decided to reinvent the map. The results are beautiful abstract-ish quilts, showing neighbourhoods as ideas. you could not navigate by these obviously, but they are beautiful, understandably map-ish.

My thought is that we do not need paper maps anymore, so we are free to reinvent them as ideas and abstract representation of space. More of that, please.
