My Country, Your Country

An interactive continental map invites you to share with others your geographic knowledge, territorial hopes, or phantasies. Similarly to the multitude of funny painting apps for children, you can paint with your fingers on a touchscreen. However, instead of colours, you paint with nation states, and instead of an empty white background you paint over a map of a continent, where no fixed country names or borders are visible. When you paint, transparent blobs, defined only by their borders and marked with the label of your chosen country evolve under your fingers.
