Mapless seeks to create nontraditional documentations of urban landscapes. The landscapes are discovered through the practice of exploration. The maps are created without the help of any preexisting maps, phones, or any other form of navigation. Instead, the path is completely dictated by the senses: sight, sounds and smells. The wanderer will only allow these aspects to guide him.

Mapless seeks to create nontraditional documentations of urban landscapes. The landscapes are discovered through the practice of exploration. The maps are created without the help of any preexisting maps, phones, or any other form of navigation. Instead, the path is completely dictated by the senses: sight, sounds and smells. The wanderer will only allow these aspects to guide him. The trips last for an hour.

This idea is not a new one to the human psyche. Check out the Wikipedia page about the concept of a dérive
here.

Through this method, Mapless hopes to create conversations regarding our cities. Do they have quality? What should be improved? How can we improve them? We can all be a part of this conversation.
