iMap on paper?

The little ‘i’ these days is usually associated with digital media. Like iPhone and iiNet. This time, art collective Melbourne Futures have collaborated on a new project, called iMaps, which is showing at the City Library in Flinders Lane as part of the 2009 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

The project aims to

Map… and document.. the spaces that we live in through community engagement.

– on PAPER!!








But unlike the iPhone that is watching and recording our every move, this mapping of human interaction is voluntary, where people who visit the art work are encouraged to sketch directly onto it, mapping their personal journeys and experiences in Melbourne.

The arts section of today’s Age reviewed the collaboration [fittingly, this piece is not available digitally], but they do have a working and interactive blog.

Sometimes it’s nice to see a small ‘i’ on a page.. 😉
