Stop-action video shows how deceptively easy it is to get out and move through the world.

Imagine opening any map app on your iphone. Go anywhere, and start scrolling through it. Your fingers may take you on a walk along the paths of St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin and down Grafton St. Maybe they decide to glide from New Delhi to Mumbai. Wherever your fingers tap and pull and slide, that’s where you go.

What if travel were that easy? Just point your shoes in a direction and they zip along the ground toward the horizon. Distances would disappear one stroke at a time, until soon–sooner than you realize–you’re someplace you’ve never been before.
