Outline

A machine draws a map out of a GPS coordinate selected by a visitor. A satellite image, created out of the drawn map, is projected on a screen. With the use of a neural network machine learning, the generated satellite image creates a new map and by that a new satellite image in an infinity loop. Although we think that maps represent only the reality, in this project, we begin to see some intentions in maps.
