Abstract: 

"In the struggle every creator of expressions goes through, the restrictions of the media being used are there, to be obeyed or to be questioned. In this paper I will show how maps and verbal texts are different media, and how these differences have consequences not only for how things are said, but also for what can be said at all using these two media. 

I will present a series of modelling experiments in which this is studied in detail. Based on the results from these experiments, an inventory of types of information that are incompatible will be presented. 

Further, it will be shown how the findings from the experiments are in line with traditional as well as recent views in the area of interart and intermedia studies, which indicates that they may be applicable to most if not all texts. 

The paper will be concluded by a discussion of how the understanding of these differences may be brought forward by future research."

All welcome.
