Constructing memories spatially – Workshop SEVEN

We realised in Workshop 7 that constructing memories of home through maps,  2.5 drawings, and photographs, isn’t a linear process. The complexities of recovering and relaying memories of home are as diverse and varied as the spaces and places in which the original events took place. After a while, we stopped speaking of ‘home’ as a specific geographic place and instead memories of the everyday replaced its physicality. Home then became a notion that each and every map conveyed differently.  We found synergies between the recovery of memory and its spatial representation manifested in layers and overlays, collages, and different scales. Each one of these maps represent a journey through time, scale and complexity.
