Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world.
At some point in all of our lives our perception of the world began to change- our knowledge of the world, from school or personal travel experience, began to grow in our minds a map of the world which started to encompass more than just our hometowns and the surrounding suburbs.
