Modern day navigational aids such as google maps and GPS devices have augmented a cartesian way of thinking about and moving through space. For the visitor to Detroit, often times home is point A and downtown Detroit point B. Everything in between becomes merely a line on a map. A line which neglects the existence of people, community, culture, and history.

This project proposes an alternative way of navigating the city.
