In time, the mapping installation may illustrate patterns yet unobserved in typical digital models. It is this emergent and unfettered map of population we wish to make into spectacle. By using the hand and the mind as the basis of material processes, we expect to narrow the gap between idealized mathematical interpretations and observable events in nature.
