Nobutaka Aozaki - From Here to There

In the world of Google Maps, we hardly ever ask for directions any more, and in a way that means we lost out on interesting cultural knowledge or local hideaways that no cellphone could ever tell you about. Japanese artist, Nobutaka Aozaki has railed against this though, and with his work 'From Here to There' - he is bringing citizen-drawn maps back. Using loads and loads of pieces of paper, Aozaki is recreating a map of Manhattan, using directions from locals drawn on pieces of paper.

It's a painstaking, difficult project but it is just so clever.
