SubMap

What would happen if we based our maps on subjective data or private information that changes across time and space? Could such a private map become public? How would its form and function be affected? 

SubMap by Kitchen Budapest distorts our traditional views of maps that are based on facts and public data. It focuses on developing a new way to visualise and express factual, location and time-based data in a dynamic way.

Take part in this two-day workshop to create your own SubMap. You will hear the SubMap back-story, and learn about issues around visualising distributed and personalised sensor network data. Then, in a more hands-on session, you will create your own SubMap. You will insert personalised information and create a distorted, personalised map of Dublin City. This distorted map can be shared online, printed on paper, taken home or left in the gallery space as a remnant of the workshop.

Please note this is a two-day workshop and attendees must attend both days.
