Jack Kerouacs On The Road told by Google Maps

Mein Buddy Gregor hat wieder zugeschlagen, diesmal hat er Jack Kerouacs On The Road durch Google Maps gejagt und einen Literatur-Remix durch deren Directions API generiert. Well done, Dicker!

Eine physische Ausgabe des Buchs gibt's On Demand bei Lulu, hier das Teil auf Issuu:

Based on the novel “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac and Google Maps Direction Service.

The exact and approximate spots Kerouac traveled and described are taken from the book and parsed by Google Direction Service API. The result is a huge direction instruction of 55 pages. The chapters match those of the original book. All in all, as Google shows, the journey takes 272,261667 hours (for 17527 miles).

This book is part of the exhibition "Poetry Will Be Made By All!" that is held in Zürich (January 30 - March 30, 2014).
