The City as a Canvas
Saturday Nov. 3, 10:00AM – 1:00PM
We will be using the shapes of the streets to make maps, draw or write, including ‘Methodical Mapping’ – finding an interesting part of the town and walking around it to create a map, such as an ornamental garden, a bridge, or pattern of roads, and ‘Psychogeography’ – mapping with repeated random instructions which provides an exciting and unusual way of exploring a town.
Participants may wish to use a bicycle or a car, as long as care is taken not to be distracted by the receiver.
