City dwellers' unique sense of distance in relation to space is defined, not by how far away destinations lie, but how long it takes to reach that destination, whatever mode of transport they choose to employ. Distant locations may seem close due to their proximity to transportation systems or to certain short cuts. These spacial perceptions traverse the city, providing an immaterial network of 'mental notes' which synchronise the veins of the metropolitan body. In Transit explores this situation by creating maps that alter conventional perceptions of urban space. Pinsky's maps are created from his own journeys, as he attempts to conjoin differing combinations of networks as a hybrid navigational tool. The maps are constructed to show points in time rather than space, re-organising the city's form, and our understanding of it.
