How do you get to your house from your current location? If you were
already at home I suppose this exercise wouldn’t be too difficult… But
how do you visualize your daily commute?
For me it is a display, in an almost instantaneous flash, of where I
am in relation to where I need to go. Or vise versa. I’m not really a
“Point A” to “Point B” thinker. I constantly visualize in abstractions
of form in order to make sense of the space I inhabit.
These are a few mapping exercises visualizing a commute from start to
finish using an abstracted path to signify the relationship between
both points. The hill grade may not be all that useful to those
traveling by car, but these were designed with the cyclist in mind.
