Google maps is not merely the guarentee for a smoothly oriented tourist holiday, but also a preemptive strike against all the flaws and perils of an unpredictable journey, the mooching stranger, the muscle ache, the horrendous taxi bill.

Concomitant with arts reckless outlook for the unknown, the sequence of 12 artist videos follows another approach to traveling - a cartography beyond the map, a search for another world to walk through. Composing a chaotic, multi-layered journey, the videos presented try to re-route roads and paths and re-insert fantastic creatures back onto the landscape. Don't get to far out. And, watch your step!
