Design of a Web App called MyMap.
It is a map revealing itself in accordance with the places you have visited physically.
It is built on the concept to expand our territories and encourage to reflect on all the place we will have to discover in our life, as well as the one we will never see. It is about reflecting on the borders and boundaries we create ‘in our mind’ the concept of ‘self-inflicted boundaries’ and how our habits and routines keep us from going outside of our comfort zone. Moreover, it is a reflection on the borders imposed by politics and territory and the inequality between nationalities restricted in the freedom of movement.
