Last Friday I was in Nottingham making a new piece of work as part of the Territorial Play event organised by Trampoline.
Using the same dual-GPS process as for Uncertain Eastside, I selected a route that took me through a variety of different urban environments including narrow streets, open wasteland, alongside large buildings and around the foot of the castle.
Each circuit of the route (2.2 miles) took approximately 45 minutes to complete and started and finished at the Broadway Media Centre where the event was hosted.
We had a ‘project room’ that we were using as a base for various tech + mapping activities. After each circuit I returned here, processed the data and turned it into a .pdf file that my glamorous assistant Russell would take to the printers whilst I set out walking again.
By the time I returned there would be a new print put up on the wall combining all the traces from all the previous walks.
I only had time for 3 circuits, but my shoes seemed to think that was plenty.
I’m really pleased with the results and had some great feedback and conversations with the other people at the event.
To share a little something of the resultant drawing – and how it relates to the landscape – I’ve added some details from the drawing to the Google Map of my route. Click on the yellow placemarkers to see the image and read the associated text.
So, head on over to the map: zoom in, zoom out, change views, click on things and have an explore!
