Crowd sourced hand drawn New York map

08/13/2013

New York artist Nobutaka Aozaki has taken to dressing as a tourist and asking strangers for directions. Not on a smart phone, Hand-drawn on paper, a receipt or even a paper plate. Aozaki is now compiling these note to create a map of Manhattan. A beautiful relief from the smartphone dependant society we live in (I as addicted as anyone)

I can’t recommended the test of Aozaki’s site, there’s some wonderful stuff on here. Least not of which the immigrant clocks.
