UTOPIA, TX

Utopia, TX is an editorial project that compares two very different "realities".
It is inspired by the 1500 book "Utopia" by Thomas More.

In the first part of his book Thomas More analyzes the contemporary society, pointing out all the flaws and problems created by the government.
In the second part he then proceeds to give a really detailed description of the Island of Utopia, a fictional place where all the people live in peace, sharing everything with each other.

In this project I compared the Utopia Island described by Thomas More with a little town in Texas, US, named Utopia by taking photograph pics using Google Street View and comparing them with some lines from More's book.
