Hacking the semiosphere

The Ad Hoc Atlas: a manifesto as manifestation of undesign, V5.3: an exercise in reflexive (and recursive) design practice about design by design
WithJoshua Singer

1. The Ad Hoc Atlas is a collection of investigations that serve as hypotheses to compensate for geographic space’s anomalies not anticipated by it in its unmodified (real) form(s). These compensatory hypotheses realign geographic space into other realities to provoke new semantic connections. The Ad Hoc Atlas is dialogic. It is not a single form, technique, document, media, artifact, or theory but rather a series of forms, techniques, documents, medias, artifacts, and theories each of which is open to unending revisions and versions. Revisions and versions are not restricted to chronology.
