Map of the world- a collaborative theatre machine




Map of the world is a open source theatre machine. A theatre machine is any creative space that uses humans to perform some activity. A creative space has implicit and explicit rules that require humans to perform or assist in performing any type of acts in a chain of events. Map of the word creative spaces have theatre devices that can be paper, pens, memories, stories or anything that helps the humans to manifest a map of the world. Everything the humans in the machine remember or conjure up about the world.
The task of the machine is to manifest a map of the world, document and share.

Map of the world explores the the question "how do we talk about our world"

There are known knowns; there are things we know we know about our world.

We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know about our world.

But there are also the unknown unknowns, the things we don't know we don't know about our world.

and finally. Unknown knowns- things we don´t know that we know about our world.

The idea is to manifest a more honest, maybe less accurate than Google Earth, view of the world. An analog map that will be unique to each creative space.

To discuss where true borders lie between nations, what we have in common and how we as humans view the world around us. But also to conjure up questions we seldom or maybe never address. How do you explain what kind of a country Russia is on a map? Is there maybe a photograph or a song that can do that?

The theatre machine will documented by the humans in the machine. The humans will be able to view documentation here on this website and compare their map with other maps of the world. Thus we can enlarge the reach and duration of the theatre machine by giving it another form and reviving questions deriving from the map and the map-makers.
