Counter-mapping is a practice which looks specifically at drawing as a method to contradict established, hegemonic traits within accepted or established cartography. As such, these drawn digital mappings serve three core theoretical functions.
Firstly, they make visible otherwise unseen or masked trajectories and continuities between events which we are familiar with. Secondly, the mapping allows the author to explore theoretical concepts developed in text, and augment them through a visual form of representation. Thirdly, the printed hard-copy versions of the mappings operate as a vehicle by which to inform discussion; operating as a bridge between different narratives and nuances of language which emerge when individuals or groups of individuals approach an issue from disparate points of view.
