Diorama Map: Photographing the Situationist City | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Aware of the profound implications of cartography, Japanese artist Sohei Nishino has created a photographic series entitled Diorama Map, carrying out what seems to be Situationist-inspired artistic process, which goes as follows: the artist walks around a chosen city on foot and documents various locations on film. He then returns to the footage, extracting still images to collage into wonderfully complex mental maps that turn imprecise lines, misalignments and gaps into spaces for individual interpretation, resisting the colonizing forms of traditionally rendered geographies.
