today not only sees america vote for either going forward or reverting into a slipstream riddled with clichés, but also the opening [7pm-9pm] of the mapping america exhibition at london's kk outlet. this interesting show attempts to untangle and visually represent the complexity of the u.s. 2012 elections and the electorate through a series of interesting and specially commissioned infographics by various renowned institutions, such as m.i.t., harvard, and the new york times, as well as a string of american and european creative studios. the result is a collection of maps and visuals that explore how issues from race and religion to unemployment and gun ownership will surely influence today's voting [on through nov 24]. location: 24 hoxton square [shoreditch].
