Andy Houston/Ilya Noé - The Blindfolded Map

The Blindfolded Map, wherein a mapper who is new to a city (Andy) engages in a process of co-guidance with a blindfolded local (Ilya), using descriptions of the landscape and relying on estimations and memory to navigate a journey from a famous landmark of the sighted mapper's choosing, to the blindfolded mapper's doorstep.
