I wanted to create a map that is participatory for the viewer, by giving away a template for customers to map their own city, bedroom, frame of mind, plans or experiences. I love this idea of documenting the boundless multiplicity of lives different people have, getting them involved in one another, opening up a bit, by sharing something personal. This is how we get to know one another. By sharing.
Sharing my own map of London is a bit of a one-way street, right? But inviting people to create their own map using the template I’ve created, to then share with someone they know, the work becomes a bit like a mixtape. It is saying: here I am, here is what I am like, what I am thinking about… Who are you?
