Imaginary Map

Imaginary Map consists of a readable non-text non-fictional drama. It shows us a virtual library including interdisciplinary research on strange natural phenomena. It pretends to be a narrative structure of event, a new kind of legibility of artistic maps based on multiple-layered cartography. Its appearance as metaphorical illusion of phenomenon seems to fill in the blanks, a void in history of evanescent figure. Imaginary map has the structure of a drama. A fictional storytelling based on real events and facts creates a metaphorical revelation as the time over cartography progressively becomes dominant. We are now afraid of the strange weather disaster rather than amusing ourselves with its presence. What we are trying to create is a map of an imaginary landscape on earth including ever happening events between chaos and surveillance. It creates a hybrid form of sequential history, which is moving and changing. A map does not determine our natural environment, but supplies us with navigation: how we see the world and why we need to watch it. It is a guide as a representation of complex imagery and a series of contents as a flexible timeline and metaphor for communication. The contents are dispersed and become a part of experience and memory in understanding certain environmental characteristics and social networking systems. Anonymity or pseudonymity accelerates in making a myth and a ritual situation – what we could call a false reality, faked truth, or, put another way, the domination of the senses replaces lost senses where they originated. Imaginary map does not show the actual picture of an original place; neither does it invoke any kind of authority to determine the identification. It is a democratic graphic of a map.
