Cities, nature and re-interpretations

Are cities just a static and paralyzed entity? Or are they a poetic inspiration for art, architecture and thoughtful urbanism? Yes...I thought so too!
These images are from the artist Lee Jang Sub who reinterpreted some urban maps of cities.
Interesting too, is the Saatchi& Saatchi campaign ads for Sony hearphones. In this case a map of a subway system was used for the ads.
