When most of us think of virtual tourism, we envision a Google Earth-esque satellite overview of a city; Pastiche heads in the other direction entirely with its text-based interface.

Rather than navigating the foreign territory of a map, Pastiche allows you to explore the neighborhoods of New York City through tags and keywords that are linked to relevant news articles. Each borough essentially turns into a cluster of linked keywords, giving the tourist a realistic snapshot of a given area.

Implications - Pastiche gives you the opportunity to explore the beautiful areas of New York City. The project surfaces the memories, emotions and descriptions that exude from the city's stunning architecture.
