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.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
