There are many amazing examples of artists who turn to cartography and geography for inspiration. Whether through the lens of a camera, paint, or sculpture, these artists have turned to creative ways to express themselves through maps.
This series of cartographically-inspired art works changes how we look at maps. Some of these artists also make us think of places that are on the Earth as explicitly "mappable" features. I think the Google Maps push-pin in the city center is my favorite. Which do you prefer?
