A Cartographic Turn André Ourednik, 2016, « Augmented Reality and the Places of Dreams », in Lévy, Jacques (dir.) A Cartographic Turn. Mapping and the Spatial Challenge in Social Sciences., EPFL Press & Routledge. pp. 299-320.

The classic, physical idea of space is built on the paradigm of exclusivity: two objects cannot occupy the same place at the same time. This logic merits challenging through the exploration of augmented-reality technologies. The foundations of cartographic representation are being upset as the Borges’ aporia of 1:1-scale map becomes a practical possibility.
