Jodorowsky's Dune
Dune -- Lynch, 1984

Make your choice: At the bottom of the map, there are a number of "Things to See," but on the left of the map, there are "Directions to Movie Homes." Charlie Chaplin, Fred Astaire, and others! George Burns! Gracie Allen.

On the map, you'll find the legend "Movie Stars' Homes Drive Starts 1.7 miles West of here." Take that point as the lawn in front of your home or dorm, or apartment. From there, follow the directions, shared on the left-hand side of the map, to find The Homes of the Stars.

Obviously, the map and your neighborhood don't line up. But what comes of this creative misreading of maps? How do you engage differently with the world?

Please record your experiences as you progress through as much of the tour as you can. I'm giving you time from class for this, so please spend at least 80 minutes (!) on this activity. And make notes as you go: Reflecting not only on what you're seeing, but the experience of this misreading.
