Inspired by the Very Small Array map, the United States of Autocorrect, I set out to create a similar map for other locations in the world using Google Instant Search.
Naturally, I started with Africa.
After eliminating the insipid instant results, something even better began to materialize. The continent took shape as a collection of history, strife and misconception - but in words. The words appeared powerful and descriptive enough on their own that I decided to remove the borders. What resulted surprised me, a map I call Africa in an Instant.
