Emergent Maps

This map was created by dripping ink down a piece of paper and turning the paper to change the course of the ink. This piece was created mostly random especially since random drops of water was added to affect the course of the ink even more. When looking at the finish piece one can see the reflection of a city map in certain parts and might even be able to picture a city emerging from the map.

Plan of a city made from the map

After the map was created, wax paper was put over the map so that a plan of a city could come out. For me personally, I started with what I believe to be the most important parts of a city or town. That would be the hospital, I put the hospital in the center of the city. This is because I wanted to make sure everyone in the city would be able to access the hospital. Later on, I realized that one hospital might not be enough for such a big city, so I put another hospital on one end of the city and is planning on putting another one on the other side of the map. After health was taken care of, I feel that education is also just as important. So I created multiple schools including primary, middle, and high school. I also created a college near the center of the city because it is very important. Although this plan for the city might not be complete but it is fill with some of what I believe to be the most important parts of a city.
