Blank Ways

Make something that is your personal definition of silence, was the assignment. Tom Loois finds his silence in places where he has never been. And there are plenty of these, even in a city you have lived in for years already. Intrigued by the blank spots in his mental map, he designed a special route planner. Blank Ways keeps track of where you have been or not been and this new application will lead you to your destination via the places you have never visited before.
