Maps and visual representations of countries and continents are deeply ingrained in our minds. 

Some would argue that they deeply influence the way we perceive the world, which is often based on distorted facts. 

For example, Africa is much bigger than it seems on many maps - and although Greenland is big, it is not actually the same size as Australia. 

This map is an example of what happens when you employ a different representation. In essence, it simply involves turning Europe back to front. For many the result is, however, disorientating, raising questions like 'have parts of the map been changed?' or 'is that really the size of the various parts of Europe?'.

What do you think of it? Does it disorient you? And does it lead to any thoughts about our shared continent?
