SciFi USA Map

The United States has a very rich history. Not just in the real world, but in the world of science fiction as well. In fact, it’s so event-filled fictionally that Brooklyn-based design company the Chopping Block wants to construct a map that points out the locations of famous, popular, and notable events that occurred in the realms of science fiction, horror, and fantasy.

Think of King Kong climbing to the top of New York City’s Empire State Building, or that final chilling scene from Body Snatchers which transpired outside San Francisco’s City Hall.

The events are numerous, and while the team has already begun cataloging the most popular of these locations, you can still pitch in by sending them the locations that you’ve thought of.

The goal is to take all this information and turn it into a piece of art. The project, entitled the “Altered States of America,” is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $5 will get you two buttons. Pledge more and you can get larger-sized buttons and posters as your reward.
