Mapping Monuments of Power

Website Design

The distribution and execution of power shapes and has shaped the world that we live in. Some of these events and their protagonists are being commemorated through monuments, and their presence still stands for old systems of power, justifying their actions through putting them on a pedestal. This tool analyses the geographical aspect of monuments, connecting their locations with the places where their power has been executed. By doing this, traces, patterns and hierarchies are being revealed. At the same time, the tools that are being used to map these locations are themselves a product of exactly those structures of power.
