Preparation for CR in SESC SJC

During the workshop days in SESC SJC participants showed a great interest in personal narrative while obtaining and creating material for impending CultureRobot installation. Appealing content was aggregated during the five days when they were making research based on presentation that displayed mapping process trough geographical mapping, mind mapping, time mapping and projects that map social, political and power relations.

Most prominent artistic working on the subject were presented, such as Josh On theyrule.net, Heath Bunting BorderXing , Warchalking project, Bureau d’Etudes and Universit√ɬ©Tangente work, MapaEnquanto by Brazilian collective Descentro, i-SEE project by Institute of Applied Autonomy and An Atlas of Radical Cartography.

Participants created maps based on their own interests. An example is mapping the water and city relations. Urbanism, water flow, street flow, underground water reservoirs and approach to communal water, abandoned water towers, rivers and bridges were investigated. This part of workshop ended resulting in drown, video and photo documentation.

An interesting image was created by one of the workshop participants depictingthe way from her home to SESC workshop only by ussing colors and shapes.

Joined map was created by inserting each of the participant map into city map, where pins and threads were used to investigate participants movement within the city as well as relation of themselves trough this movement. Maps were than replicated in digital form using googlemaps technologies and collaborative map was created. Participants were also introduced to the GPS technology that was used to mark some of city points by its latitude and longitude.
