Desire Lines Atlas

AN ATLAS OF WALKING PATHS THROUGHOUT THE CITY OF VILNIUS

With this work I'm creating another layer to the map of the city. When combining snapshots of satellite images and putting twigs on each page to build a guide of paths that are made by walking. These paths are made by the people to establish the shortest way between places. Some of those footpaths I do remember and others were found by satellite images. I see this phenomenon as another layer of the city which is less official. It speaks about the urban planning of the place, the amounth of green areas inside the city as well as common behaviour among people.

 

The atlas is composed of 244 images and 13 chapters.

Each chapter presents a different part of the city.
