Originating from my diploma project in collaboration with Reto Bürki and Dorian Mining, LimaDeltaRomeo is a research project (critical design) published by the University of the Arts Bern, Switzerland. It looks at the question of how our perception, concepts and knowledge of space are communicated through (geographical) maps and different strategies of mapping and in return how this informs our understanding of our environment. Thus in this project, maps are looked at as as images communicating our ideas and our understanding of space, as rhetorical devices.
The project is split into two parts – a theoretical research and a model.
The model LimaDeltaRomeo is an imaginary place that serves as a testing ground for the development of different novel forms of mapping and other forms of geographical representation. All of the mappings are based on real data which subsequently has been anonymised to retain the maps character as models.
The result of the entire research is published as a book. To show the relationship between text and images a system for cross-referencing was developed.
