In 1963 Jerry Gretzinger doodled a map of a small imaginary town. His sketch took on a life of its own and today comprises over 2,600 hand-crafted panels spanning a jawdropping 2,000 square feet. The world depicted evolves and shape-shifts as he works and re-works a panel every day. To guide the evolution, Jerry has devised an elaborate game of chance that features a card deck with instructions—the map’s “future predictor.” Each morning he chooses a card at random that determines his course of action for that day—one day he might add new features to a panel, while on the next he might completely void one out. This is hand-wrought Minecraft on a truly massive scale.
