Although affective and collaborative mapping are currently being studied in Cartography these two paradigms are not exclusive to this discipline. In fact, different disciplines are actively engaged in exploring their possibilities. For example artworks that are demonstrating how contemporary art and design can be used for exploring the relationship between people and space in order to discover new realities, perceptions and emotions that possibly could remain unknown under the objectivity of the conventional map representations. This paper aims to provide an overview of some artworks that are unfolding the realms of affective mapping where everything that takes place in a physical dimension only acquires its meaning through the collaboration of the participants or the sharing of an artist’s perspective. Through a discussion of these artistic developments, new research challenges are described in a way that brings together arts, society and cartography will be explored
