It matters which maps map maps.

Soft maps attempts to re-build tools for navigation and orientation by looking at mapping through an alternative lens. Here, a swimming pool is our working model, and the act of cleaning the pool becomes an algorithm for mapping. We explore how tools and presence shape maps, forming a multi-perspective map & score that questions conventional cartographic practices.

Our project asked;
What kind of maps get to shape our world?
Who gets to build these maps and who they are built for ?
Working with our nonhuman collaborators we create localised cartographies which challenge the territories or narratives that maps claim to represent.
