From A to B

From A to B began as a body of research carried out for my extended essay, exploring the question “How does 21st Century wayfinding design impact the ways in which we relate to our surroundings?”. The research brought me to the conclusion that as most 21st Century wayfind tools, such as Google Maps, function through GPS, there is no longer so much of a necessity to use one’s surroundings to aid with wayfinding, and that the result of this in an increasing sense of detachment from one’s environment. I wanted to create a piece of work that explored the outcomes of this research visually, without aiming to solve the issues of 21st Century wayfinding, but instead intending to provide some different prompts for considering the role it plays in our day to day lives.
