Interactive Nolli Map of Rome (1748)

The 1748 Map of Rome, byAGiambattista Nolli is widely regarded by scholars as one of the most important historical documents of the city ever created and serves to geo-reference a vast body of information to better understand the Eternal City and its key role in shaping Western Civilization. The Nolli Map Web Site introduces students to Rome and the structure of its urban form; it illustrates the evolution of the city over time; and it reveals diverse factors that determined its development.

Marjolijn Boterenbrood

Marjolijn, a Dutch artist, sent us some documentation of her project exploring a neighborhood in Haarlem called Haarlem Oost (Haarlem East). Approaching the area as a terra incognita, she explored the area by taking walks, talking to locals, finding seeds, watching, listening, and smelling. After her investigations she created a series of maps: a map of smells, a map documenting the birthplaces of various residents, a fear map, a fauna map, even a map to hidden treasures in the neighborhood. She also invented a drawing machine that allowed residents of Haarlem Oost to contribute their own ideas of place and later invited nine other artists to contribute their own investigations of the area.

Burning Man Visualized

The history of Burning Man has always been a complex entity that has survived, nay, mutated over the years. And because of this, it has grown rapidly since its humble beginnings of a simple gathering on a beach.

The infographic poster shows only a small portion of what Burning Man is. By no means do mere numbers even begin to show a complete picture, as that is a history of stories, experiences, and individual tales.
