The workshop, though relatively short, was an intense few days in which I was glad to get to know our participants better. We had an interesting group that was already quite knowledgeable on the subject of mapping. Carla for instance pointed us to some works we hadn’t seen before in which the links between text and location was explored, called 21 steps. Funnily enough it was Gelo who later came up with visualpin, which did much the same but for video.
Not wanting to waste time we first met in the hotel Paseo del Arte’s lobby on thursdaynight to have a first round of introductions. We had a cup of tea and discussed the backgrounds of the participants, ending with some homework: Carla and Gelo would also give a little presentation about some works they mentioned this first night.
