Experimental Geography is a term first developed by geographer Trevor Paglen in 2002 to describe a form of geography at the intersection of art and experimentation.

"In the hands of contemporary artists, the study of humanity’s engagement with the earth’s surface becomes a riddle best solved in experimental fashion. The exhibition presents a panoptic view of this new practice, through a wide range of mediums including sound and video installations, photography, sculpture, and experimental cartography".[1]
