The Monday Map: Conductor by Alexander Chen
This week we’d like to present the amazing Conductor project by Alexander Chen. It’s not technically a map but more of a modern art project based on a map, Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 diagram of the NY subway system (see below).
The project is publicly available at the Internet address: mta.me. Basically, “Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument” as the author puts it. Honestly, it’s one of the most impressive thing we’ve see in a while. Of course, we love that it’s based on a beautiful map but we’ve been stunned by the creativity of mixing music, beautiful design and real-time trafic information.
Find more really cool projects on Alexander Chen’s official website.
