That is an ugly arse map
It makes us look more isolated than we are.
No, the point is that it shows exactly how isolated we are, more accurately than previous maps.
My problem with it is that the designer claims it is more representative of distances between places. Which for the Northern Hemisphere might be true, but it is way out for us and most of the Southern Hemisphere.
Chile, in reality, is a lot closer than the US, but on that map it looks a lot further away.
Another example I could use. I can go to my nearest beach and stand on a point where due west there is nothing (but water) between me and Argentina, and due south, nothing between me and Antarctica.
Both of these can be shown to children on a Mercator projection map of the world or a globe. But it would be hard for them to visualise that on the map above. It is too distorted to be usable.
Of course the globe is the only really useful representation of the world.
