The Mobile Map of Europe

It is easy to forget that history is a moving thing, a living, breathing entity that moves through the decades and centuries.

Political borders that seem absolute – even today – are not, and this map is a great way to remind ourselves that history will not be denied.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.

    The Mobile Map of Europe. This is quite a piece of work.
    I’m sure if you analyzed it, it would be controversial in places. There are times when no-one can agree where a border is.
    But it shows that, in reality, borders are actually as changeable as we believe they are constant.
