Mapkin was shown at the exhibition ‘Provocative Objects’ at MassArt in November, 2010. The interaction was very simple. I created an area for a person to draw a map of the world on a napkin, take a picture of it using the webcam, and enter it into a projected slideshow (thanks to Pol Pla i Conesa and Alex Wang). I collected over one hundred hand-drawn maps that represented the unique perspectives of the mapmaker and their knowledge of geography.
