Paper co-authored by Jaz Choi on Feral ‘Mapping’

We are thrilled to share a new paper co-authored by CivicIxD Associate Lector, Jaz Choi and esteemed colleagues Andrea Botero Cabrera, Markéta Dolejšová, and Lachlan Sleight. The article, titled “𝗠𝗲𝘀𝘀𝘆, 𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗹𝗲𝗱, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗽𝗲𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗳𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴: 𝗙𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝗠𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗶𝗻𝗴,” has been published in the International Journal of Cartography.

In this innovative study, the researchers introduce the ‘Feral Map’, an open online map that brings together different creative practices questioning the dominant extractive, technocentric rendering and legitimizing of particular algorithmic futures. This work pushes the boundaries of traditional mapping and offers fresh perspectives on how we understand and represent the world around us.
