Description: Whether in illusions of curling corners, ripped insets, or overlapping sheets, cartographers have long enticed us to reach out and touch their creations. This exhibition invites you to learn more about the relationship between touch and sight in the representation of abstract space and how those visual illusions have traveled the world.
