The map is an image that we already know.

‘This is the point: in the age of the information society, when getting lost has become ‘optional’, when we are able to find the places where we go by simply ‘activating’ on our smartphone the required layer of information, checking not even a map but just one little fragment of it, Déirdre Kelly’s altered maps take us back near to the physical reality of places by offering us an unreal image of them; a distorted image that, paradoxically, allows us to identify with geography much more than using the precisely arranged cartography we experiment with as a result of the digitalisation of our daily life.’
