Map views showing various bits of maps stitched together online using Google Maps software.

As the map scrolls by, borders are revealed… Composed of several bits of Google Maps, Yellow Road is a collage of maps that shows a yellow road travelling horizontally across different countries. This road traverses a new world where geography comes together and then pulls apart, where countries cross borders and overlap to form a single geopolitical space.


The map unscrolls like a papyrus.

The project exists both online and as a scrolling map object. Thus, readers can experience the territory by scrolling the object as if they were scrolling horizontally on the Web.
