Street View of the United States

Van Mensvoort
July 18th 2011

The All Streets map visualizes of all the 240 million individual road segments in the United States. Although no other features — outlines, cities, or types of terrain — are marked, canyons and mountains emerge as the roads are layed around them.

Roadless terrain forms the topography of the Appalachian Mountains.

San Francisco. A detail of the West Coast shows the scarcity of roads in mountainous areas, punctuated by the densely populated Bay Area.

That designers remove information and everyone pretends this is art is the real scary part.

Thats scary, somehow.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
