Maps: Finding Our Place in the World


Innovative interactive Flash recreation of an exhibition of historical maps that was held as part of The Festival of Maps in Chicago, 2007-2008. The website recreates the exhibition layout in a 'fly-around' isometric form. The exhibition included fictional maps, such as those by J.R.R. Tolkien, and Bernard Sleigh's 'Anciente Mappe of Fairyland'. Clicking on exhibits brings up a pop-up box with an image and text about that exhibit.
