The paper note map of Manhattan that talented conceptual artist Nobutaka Aozaki is creating is a wonderful way to use the past to create modern art. Instead of using your cellphone or a GPS, when is the last time you tried asking people on the street for directions?

It's a really interesting concept to not only turn these various notes from strangers into an all encompassing map of Manhattan, but also the distinct way she is getting the directions. In the end the form that Aozaki is using allows for literally every person who gave her directions to have their own special part in this conceptual masterpiece. Having a work of art that includes the populace is an amazing and ingenious way to get creative.
