Artist's Description

That’s so cool! …wait, Ann Arbor has a subway?

Well, no, it does not. This is a speculative Ann Arbor subway map. The locations are real and signficant. The map is both geographically-inspired (the locations are roughly correct) and partially thematically-inspired (neighboring stations, or stations on a given subway line, by and large have a theme). But it is completely pretend.

How did you get this idea?

When we lived in Tokyo, we used the subway and Japan Railway systems extensively, and developed a deep appreciation for how rail map designers conveyed the complexities of the city in a way that was simultaneously informative, concise, and beautiful. Those maps in Tokyo became expressions of possibilities and adventures. Nearly every weekend, we would identify a place on the map we knew nothing about, and just go there. Sometimes we would discover a new park, a wonderful restaurant, an interesting shop, or perhaps just an encounter with some beautiful architecture.

We wanted to capture that essence for our adopted home of Ann Arbor – where we have lived now for more than a decade. We made one to hang on our wall at home, and when a couple of our friends saw it, they remarked, “You know, I bet you could sell that.” And we thought, “Hey, that sounds like it’s worth a shot!” And so here we are.
