An interesting project by ‘The institute for infinitely small things’. Residents of Cambridge, Massachusetts, were invited to rename every public space. Names were given either by silliness or personal experiences. At the end of the day the city becomes democratic and subjective to its citizens.
This project comprises more than 300 unique globes, created over 2 decades that provide visual models of geopolitical issues. For example one globe shows that if all the cars in the world were placed end to end, they would circle the globe 72 times!

Duman took photographs of the sites and placed words on each image in order to completely replace the visual components with labels.
