Product Description

Review

“What could be more delightful--and unsettling--than turning loose a group of contemporary surrealists, disguised as vagabonds and artists, in the ripe fields of the hyper-real? Experimental Geography isn’t about space; it is about terminal strangeness.”
--Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz and Ecology of Fear

"Living in cities, we need a new way to think about how we move and what we notice... This strange, exciting book offers just that--a new way to notice public space. It is the brainchild of Nato Thompson: the results of his fascinations with urban planning post-Katrina, abandoned or unnoticed urban landscapes and public art."
--Susan Salter Reynold, Los Angeles Times

"We know that a book touting 'radical approaches to cartography' may not set your pulse racing, but the playful and probing diagrams in Experimental Geography--including a map of the last half-century of arms trades that scribbles out just about the entire globe--ought to at least get your mind melting."
--Jonathan Messinger, Time Out Chicago
