This site is about the human behaviour of mapping and the making of maps. Not just maps for navigating the actual world but mental maps, decorative maps, metaphorical maps, in fact anything that can be interpreted as a map.

The reason that I have set it up is because I feel that the mapping process appears to be core to being human. It appears to influence some of our most celebrated and some of our most despicable acts: from arts to warfare, from our understanding of illness to our understanding of existence, from faiths to technology. In essence the nature of our sense of being seems to depend quite a lot on how we locate ourselves relative to anything we experience and one of the ways we do that is mapping.

The site is itself an attempt to map some of the ideas that I have had when looking at and thinking about things from this particular perspective.

I am very interested in hearing what anyone has to say on the subject.
