While extracting GIS information and data from satellites might sound fun, the purpose of this series of projects is not about showing-off technical skills but rather to express a the yearn for one's homeland. I am from Caracas Venezuela a city defined by El Avila, the mountain that oversees the city in the valley. I miss certain things about Caracas and certainly there is a strange feeling which I can't find a name.
We yearn not of a past but of an alternative future and path that was never taken. This way the mountain keeps claiming my spirit and I keep on going back to it.
Cartographies is meant to reawaken such feelings and memories by the touch of the material and the user's finger tips.
