Where We Are is a book of maps. It's a collection of writing (non-fiction and fiction) and visuals (drawings, photographs, paintings) that explodes what a map is. A wide range of writers, thinkers, artists responded to what their map would be, bringing together human stories about modern, everyday personal lives and mapping. Those stories range from Chloe Aridjis's short story mapping out the daily journeys of a homeless woman in Mexico City, to John Simpson's essay that looks at the perils of following GPS systems in South Africa, to Geoff Dyer mapping out his childhood.About the Author:

We map how we get from a to b. We map when wee(tm)re somewhere new, and somewherewee(tm)ve been many times before. We map ourselves, our days, our thoughts, memories, what we want to mark,save and share. Today it seems, that most of the time, despite all this mapping, we actually don't have a clearsense of where we are. Where We Are , a collection of new work, explores the shift from our classic understanding of map as geographyto a more personal, human map. This collection of new writings, photographs, drawings, thinking looks toexplode the map as we know it. A book of maps that puts people, not destinations at the centre, hoping to leavereaders feeling completely lost.A collection of work, edited by Visual Editions, made with help by our friends at Google Creative Lab, publishedas a book and on the screen.
