Mapping the Sky consists of a cartographic study of the non-physical and undefinable: how can the sky itself be defined as a space? Mapping out the sky itself as a space in its own right has never been done before. Over a period of two years, Maud van den Beuken collaborated with cartographer Falco Joosten to develop a method for defining the sky.

With technical support of ESRI, the European Space Agency (ESA), KNMI and Hasselblad.
