TravelByDrone, A Site That Catalogs Drone Videos From Around the World on an Interactive Map

This Friday’s Untitled #69 (Uncharted) has got us thinking about maps boundary-pushing. Quite coincidental: we just stumbled across this new kind of map celebrating a new kind of travel!

“The artist was not present for the weeklong dismantling of her giant Baby and declined to be interviewed. Concerned about the emotions she’d suffer, her staff packed her off to a house in the woods.

What aspect of the artwork did you most try to capture? 
It’s just so dynamic and there is so much movement. You can also really tell how strong the horse’s leg is (compared to the man).
