This story began from a simple line on paper and continued to early representations, scribbled by the traveler’s hand, during the 17th century while commuting by carriage all the way to the various trajectories traced on the landscape canvas by motorized vehicles that became the rough draft of our infrastructure, re-territorializing every era to our up-to-date footprint.

Originally, it was the intention towards a destination but not always the destination itself.
