How could I meditate on the equality which nature has established among men and the inequality they instituted? If I had to choose the place of my birth would have chosen a company with a magnitude limited by the reach of human faculties a state in which all individuals if they knew each other so that neither the dark maneuvers of addiction, not greed or the barriers between races, sexes or ages were a fact.

Mind the gap

(disambiguation) To accomplish this project (Mind the Gap) I had first to understand the meaning and origin of the words: “Mind the gap� is a warning to train passengers to take caution while crossing the gap between the train door and the station platform. It was introduced in 1969 on the London Underground. The phrase is also associated with t-shirts that Transport for London sells featuring the phrase printed over a London Transport symbol. From this point thought necessary research work of other artists and designer associated with the same theme to understand the circumstances that affect the lives of older people and the pathways to loneliness and isolation came to the conclusion that my research through Internet and other various media such as magazines and books, they limited me to the point that I resorted to methods that others had used previously, so I had to resort to a physical contact, both with people as with the environment where they typically spend most of their time. I think I have some very interesting and curious to discover the philosophy behind this fact or rupture and what are the reasons that lead an individual to isolation? Day after day this is an increasingly common fact in the society in which we live. Some facts point to the internet, because virtual communities in which the human physical contact does not exist others point to more concrete cases such as family problems, financial crisis, the type of work that sometimes affects the particular lifestyle.

Baskeville - history

Baskerville is a “transitional” typeface, designed by John Baskerville in England in the mid-18th century, revived in the early 20th The various versions of “Baskerville” take as their starting point types used by John Baskerville in England in the mid-18th century. Baskerville had been a “writing master”, but at a time when the model to which writing aspired was not the humanist model, but one based much more closely on the work of engravers. When, having made a fortune in the japanning business, John Baskerville turned his attention to printing, he seems to have aspired to this aesthetic. He main works were monumental and classical in every sense: physically large editions of great classics (Virgil, the Bible). The type was crisp, the paper smooth and pale. They are often classified as “transitional” type, because they bridge the gap between “old-style” type (with its oblique stress and relatively low contrast) and “modern” type, with its vertical stress, high contrast, and sharp finish. Baskerville’s roman is fairly round and open, with a vertical stress but relatively low contrast. Baskerville (like Caslon) had quite different designs for use at different sizes. Monotype’s was based on a font designed for use at a fairly large size in an edition of Terence’s comedies published in 1772. ATF and Linotype

century and widely used for books and other long texts. Many versions are available. used strikes from genuine punches of a smaller size type; it is not therefore surprising that different versions of Baskerville look noticeably different: they are (or may) still be “authentic”. Baskerville, in its various versions, was popular for book work during the letterpress era. How has it survived digitization and offset printing? In principle, it should do well: Baskerville’s printing technique did not depend (indeed it eschewed) the three-dimensional element of letterpress. His model was planographic or sharp-edged: the inscription and the engraving. He ought to thrive. Baskerville’s typeface was the culmination of a larger series of experiments to improve legibility which also included paper making and ink manufacturing. The result was a typeface that reflected Baskerville’s ideals of perfection, where he chose simplicity and quiet refinement. His background as a writing master is evident in the distinctive swash tail on the uppercase Q and in the cursive serifs in the Baskerville Italic. The refined feeling of the typeface makes it an excellent choice to convey dignity and tradition.

Din - history

A veteran of the European electronic music scene since the late 70s, UK based sonic explorer Ian Boddy has produced 13 CDs on his Something Else Records label. Emerging from the post TDream generation, Boddy has carved out a distinctive position as an independent composer and performer. As well as his CD output he has also released several library music CD’s for deWolfe and is well known for his pioneering work with the sample CD company Zero-G. There have been 34 releases since the launch of DiN including DiN 10 - iNDEX 01 which was a sampler CD of DiN 1 - 9. This disc was featured in the June 2001 issue of the well respected music magazine The Wire. There have been a wide range of artists involved with DiN so far including Chris Carter, Robert Rich, Tetsu Inoue, Markus Reuter, ARC, Centrozoon, Dub Atomica, Surface 10, Protogonos, Subsonic Experience, dbkaos, Parallel Worlds, Klaus Hoffmann-Hoock, Bernhard Wöstheinrich, Erik Wøllo and of course IanBoddy. With such an eclectic mix of musicians it’s fair to say there’s been quite a range of musical styles emerging on DiN. However under the guidance of Boddy the output on DiN has a consistency and high standard that will challenge and interest all

lovers of “fine contemporary Electronica”. In 1994, in San Francisco, Albert-Jan Pool and Erik Spiekermann took a cab together from the ATypI conference to the airport. Spiekermann knew that Pool’s employer went bust, so he told him that if he wanted to earn some money with type design, he should have a look at fonts such as OCR and DIN. At the same time, he invited Pool to Berlin to discuss the idea in detail. One year later, FontFont published Pool’s typeface FF OCR-F, followed by the family FF DIN. Spiekermann had the skill to point out an empty space in the market. Digital DIN fonts were available at that time, however, only in two weights and solely in pure geometric shape. Pool designed a family of five weights, he added true italics and also some alternative characters, such as the “i” with a round dot and the lower case figures. With time, five weights of DIN Condensed were added, as well as Greek and Cyrillic versions. The shape of the new FF DIN differs from the original mostly by thinner horizontal strokes and by more fluent curves. Despite its primitive, technical look and the clear reference to the German motorway signboards, FF DIN became a phenomenon.


SOCIAL NETWORKING & THE GENERATION GAP

On Campus Libraries EMAIL: Recently, the link to an article titled Email is for old people was passed around via our email system to all us old folk, two years after the PEW study on Teens and Technology, so, speed of light on that tidbit of news. The conclusion of this study was that when the Internet Generation needs to communicate with old people, they email, but to contact friends, they text message or post to a communications network. So email can be viewed as a bridge to communication between the generations, but I also think that email serves to connect people with a shared purpose, no matter what their age. For example, one form of email especially important in the workplace, and which appears to have replaced the traditional printed memo for business communication, is a remarkable service called the group email. Group emailing is a service designed to facilitate sending announcements and meeting reminders to a mass audience. It’s fast, it’s simple, and so seamless in function that it can be done without taxing anyone’s ability to put effort into their writing, making it a nearly perfect form of professional communication. Still, as much as I enjoy this daily, sometimes hourly mailing feature, I find that I do occasionally forget to read group emails, much to the astonishment of my co-workers who love to send out important memos to their group on topics like, “Why does the elevator smell?” or “What’s that fan doing in the hallway?” Sometimes, reading these notices, I can’t help but wonder what people did to communicate with a group before email. Did they stand at the water cooler and shout as their fellow co-workers walked past? Did they post a memo about how to keep stains from the carpet or rodents out of the breakroom? I wish I could recall, but I hear aging affects memory, so there you go. I do know that I occasionally miss reading those practical work-related messages. This fact has been noted with amazement by my fellow librarians, who apparently sort and read everything sent to their inbox and view me as transparently lazy. I suffer from another technology glitch with email. My spam filter is flawed. Sometimes it tosses relevant emails to my junk file; like my monthly free movie coupon. Sometimes it doesn’t filter out those lottery winnings sent

from the Ukraine. Noting these minor issues, I’ve come to believe that email may not always be the best method of communication, even for the elderly. In fact, I’m not sure email problems have anything to do with the age of the sender, or the gender, (if anyone wants to argue that point.) In conclusion, I believe that every email sent carries two seductive features: First, you can avoid talking to a co-worker in person and still claim to be communicating efficiently. Second, you can claim you never saw an email and people believe you. I just can’t decide if these features are a technology flaw or a selling point. But perhaps text messaging is the solution. Let’s see how thatworks. IM CHAT ON CAMPUS: I quizzed a few college students in a less than official text messaging survey to see if they rely more on text messaging in college or email to communicate with each other and this is what I was told: The students used to chat when they were in high school, but now their friends are all on different schedules, and that makes connecting via IM more difficult.Apparently, in order to communicate more effectively, they joined the grown ups, even when communicating with each other. They also use their cell phones. Sometimes I believe they hang out together and just talk, but it makes them feel terribly old fashioned. IM CHAT FOR THE REFERENCE DESK. IM Chat is a new service rolled out on the library’s Web site. It’s activity can be counted, an important feature when putting together an annual usage report. However, those of us at the reference desk can’t just ignore older technologies, for example, microfiche, the bane of libraries in the 80’s, is still around. So, the desk phone still rings and the reference email inbox fills up-mostly with ads for products that old people can use to improve their waning sex drive or penny stock tips for their retirement. We also occasionally get a live visitor now and then at the desk. I believe we refer to this as face-to-face contact. Between all the reference services we offer, I find, despite my advancing years, that I can multitask. A custom I am told is restricted to the young. So let me send a shout out to all those who


DIN (OTF) -19 pt/Regular- (22.8 pt)

have helped me develop this youthful skill, honed by years of working at the reference desk of a busy law firm library, strengthened by being a m.o.m. (mother of multiples) to two small girls born to the Internet generation. I can see from the list of latest Web 2.0 products that I will only continue to evolve my meager brain/thumb. FACEBOOK: Recently discovered by the older set, librarians are flocking to facebook. I believe their communities or “friends” are usually other librarians rather than students, even in the public and academic setting. However, librarians have advanced the idea that this social networking tool is a way to reach out to the younger generations.9 Well, it’s logical. After all, if early adopting sexual predators can develop the skills necessary to prowl the Internet and reach out to young people, librarians can too. BLOGGING THE LIBRARY: There is evidence that blogs can be used to lure patrons to use library services. For example, public librarians reach out to teens using a variety of technology resources and get teens involved in their community libraries by asking them to help create the blog, wiki or podcast. Others events in the luringteens-to-use-the-library arsenal include hosting gaming sessions in the library. But don’t just rely on technology, for as the author of one article admonishes,10 for librarians it is essential to maintain as much face-to-face contact with teens as possible. How quaint. LIBRARIAN IMAGE & TECHNOLOGY: Buns in the hair, sexy, hot ‘50’s style clothing and owl-shaped glasses for librarians sold during the Halloween season, shushing, frowning librarians, these images have but one thing in common: They are female images. If women dominated the field of carpentry, firefighting, and professional baseball the way they dominate professions as librarians, nurses and teachers, then baseball players would have an image problem that had nothing to do with the use of steroids. Call me cynical, I hear it is a feature of my gen-

eration, but I don’t think technological skills or networking skills alone will displace the bun, although it might raise our salaries. (I’ve noticed the IT folks on campus all make more than me.) However, for those who care about their professional image as librarians, I do have a suggestion: Either you can grow older and learn to not care about the opinion of others, or encourage more men to join the field, but make sure they work out. Maybe you can lure these hunks to the profession with hot technology and games. Generation Now’s Hardware Request My daughters, twins, age five, told me they want a computer of their own. They are both from the Internet generation so, as the media has pointed out, their technology skills are innate and I won’t have to train them in usage. Therefore, I simply asked my girls, “What kind of computer would you like?” One daughter said she wants a pink one, the other, a rainbow.

A social network service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on building and reflecting of social networks or social relations among people, e.g., who share interests and/ or activities. A social network service essentially consists of a representation of each user (often a profile), his/her social links, and a variety of additional services. Most social network services are web based and provide means for users to interact over the internet, such as e-mail and instant messaging. Although online community services are sometimes considered as a social network service. In a broader sense, social network service usually means an individualcentered service whereas online community services are group-centered. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, activities, events, and interests within their individual networks.


The lever of Technology What Does Social Networking Mean?

WILL TECHNOLOGY INCREASE THE GAP BETWEEN YOUNG AND HOLD PEOPL

Social networking mainly focuses upon building online communities for people that share common interests and activities. Most social networking sites are internet based and present a lot of ways for users to interact, such as through, chartrooms, e-mails and instant messaging. Social Networking has given birth to newer ways to communicate and share information across the web and these sites are being used habitually by millions of people globally Social Networking. . . It’s the way the 21st century communicates today. Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups, like small rural communities or a neighborhood subdivision, if you will. Although social networking is possible in person, especially in the workplace, universities, and high schools, it is most popular online. This is because unlike most high schools, colleges, or workplaces, the internet is filled with millions of individuals who are looking to meet other people, to gather and share first-hand information and experiences about cooking, golfing, gardening, developing friendships or professional alliances, finding employment, business-to-business marketing and even groups sharing information about the end of the Mayan calendar and the Great Shift to arrive December 21-2012. The topics and interests are as varied and rich as the story of our world. When it comes to online social networking, websites are commonly used. These websites are known as social sites. Social networking websites function like an online community of internet users. Depending on the website in question, many of these online community members share common interests in hobbies, religion, or politics. Once you are granted access to a social networking website you can begin to socialize. This socialization may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them. The friends that you can make are just one of the many benefits to social networking online. Another one of those benefits includes diversity because the internet gives individuals from all around the world access to social networking sites. This means that although you are in the United States, you could develop an online friendship with someone in Den-

mark or India. Not only will you make new friends, but you just might learn a thing or two about new cultures or new languages and learning is always a good thing. As mentioned, social networking often involves grouping specific individuals or organizations together. While there are a number of social networking websites that focus on particular interests, there are others that do not. The websites without a main focus are often referred to as “traditional” social networking websites and usually have open memberships. This means that anyone can become a member, no matter what their hobbies, beliefs, or views are. However, once you are inside this online community, you can begin to create your own network of friends and eliminate members that do not share common interests or goals. As I’m sure you’re aware, there are dangers associated with social networking including data theft and viruses, which are on the rise. The most prevalent danger though often involves online predators or individuals who claim to be someone that they are not. Although danger does exist with networking online, it also exists in the real world, too. Just like you’re advised when meeting strangers at clubs and bars, school, or work -- you are also advised to proceed with caution online. By being aware of your cyber-surroundings and who you are talking to, you should be able to safely enjoy social networking online. It will take many phone conversations to get to know someone, but you really won’t be able to make a clear judgment until you can meet each other in person. Just use common sense and listen to your inner voice; it will tell you when something doesn’t feel right about the online conversations taking place. Once you are well informed and comfortable with your findings, you can begin your search from hundreds of networking communities to join. This can easily be done by performing a standard internet search. Your search will likely return a number of results, including MySpace, FriendWise, FriendFinder, Yahoo! 360, Facebook, Orkut, and Classmates.

We still need libraries in the digital age? With the government axing public services, librarians are being forced to defend their existence against accusations of irrelevance in modern society. As one adviser on Newsnight put it during the BBC’s recent “mini-consultation” on the proposed cuts, why do we need libraries when everyone has broadband and can access information without recourse to a librarian?

There are a number of problems with this argument. Firstly, as recent statistics from the Office for National Statistics demonstrate, not everyone has broadband access, let alone internet access. Statistics for 2009 show that 63% of the UK population have broadband, leaving more than a third who do not. Furthermore, more than 10 million adults in the UK have never used the internet. And, unsurprisingly, it is the poorest who are least likely to have an internet connection – only 52% of those with no qualifications have access. Public libraries provide a key role in both facilitating access to information via the internet, as well as providing free internet access to bridge the digital divide, which does not only exist between industrialised and developing nations. Taking away this important role would disenfranchise people further, and mean they would have to refer to a commercial provider. Given that they are likely to have very few available resources, how can anyone morally argue that there is no longer a need for libraries to provide free internet? Libraries are a bridge between the information-rich and the information-poor. They need reinforcing, not dismantling. We need to continue to provide a highly skilled service that is able to meet the needs of the general public. The service ought to continue to innovate to take advantage of the way in which people are interacting with the service in a different way. It needs to continue to bridge the gap between those who have access to the internet and those who do not, while also ensuring it delivers on other aspects of its core service (book loans, local studies materials, etc). If the service is cut, we run the risk of an ill-informed society that is ill-equipped to prosper in the “information age” – a dangerous prospect for any democracy.


We live amidst multiple crises — economic and political, cultural and ecological — that pose a significant threat to human life as we understand it. I suspect that the real problem here is that some people does not remember what the Post Office was like before FedEx and email--before, in short, the salutary effects of capitalist competition had made it clear that the organization had better shape up if anyone who worked for it wanted to continue enjoying their dizzyingly boring, but steady and lavishly benefitted, jobs. Or what the phone company was like before there were cell phones and long distance competition. These references to the post office are a bit of carryover from a worse era. But importantly, they’re a bit of carryover from a worse era in which government was bigger and had more power over the market. This is worth remembering in a discussion about expanding government’s brief--if we’re old enough to remember.. Seems to me all that the privatization of the post office has done is made the cost of sending a letter double in the last 15 years. BTW, what do lavish benefits include: healthcare and a pension?

The capitalist age gap For centuries it has been more acceptable for an older man to date a younger woman, but not the other way around. In fact, marrying younger woman or at the very least seems very acceptable if not a goal of older man. Look at Woody Allen. Why are men allowed to act out their Lolita complexes while women walk around with an expiry date for romance on their forehead? If love is supposed to be an ageless, timeless thing, than an age difference should not matter particularly if the eyes that you seem to be locking with seem to be those of a soulmate. Some believe that May/December romances are ultimately doomed, simply because sooner or later, generational differences will cause them to go their separate ways

There is no way to be awake to the depth of these crises without an emotional reaction. There is no way to be aware of the pain caused by these systemic failures without some experience of dread, depression, distress. To be fully alive today is to live with anguish, not for one’s own condition in the world but for the condition of the world, for a world that is in collapse — any sensible political program to which we can commit for the long haul has to start with an honest assessment of reality.

The relationship between knowledge and attitudes, attitudes and intentions, and intentions and actual responsible behavior, are weak at best. There seem to be many more factors that infuence pro-environmental behavior. Hines et al . (1986 –87) called these ‘situational factors’ which include economic constraints, social pressures, and opportunities to choose different actions. 1. Persons with a strong selfish and competitive orientation are less likely to act ecologically; 2. People who have satisfied their personal needs are more likely to act ecologically because they have more resources (time, money, energy) to care about bigger, less personal social and pro-environmental issues.

Behavior The way in which one acts or conducts oneself, esp. toward others : good behavior | his insulting behavior toward me. • The way in which an animal or person acts in response to a particular situation or stimulus : the feeding behavior of predators. • The way in which a natural phenomenon or a machine works or functions : the erratic behavior of the old car. Motivation The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way : escape can be a strong motivation for travel. • The general desire or willingness of someone to do something : keep staff up to date and maintain interest and motivation. Egoistic an ethical theory that treats self-interest as the foundation of morality. Beliefs • something one accepts as true or real; a firmly held opinion or conviction.

REFLECTION

The reason that prompted me to do research related to this population of Southville due to the fact that I think this area is very interesting because of its history and its geographical position Southville has always been a poor area, situated on the south bank of the River Avon and northwest of Bedminster with a rate of population or industrial families with managing small business, the area was bombed in the second world war, with the large number of streets losing one or more houses. The house price boom of the early 21st Century has seen new builds on existing vacant sites and sites bombed on Which HAD Been previously used for other Activities such as pre-fabricated Garages and car sales lots. The area has gentrified since the early Been 1980s, national Accompanying the rise in house prices. It Has Been Referred to the Lower jokingly Clifton, a reference

to a more Prosperous area of the city. New bars and restaurants and the nationally renowned Tobacco Factory Theatre Attract visitors to the area, while the Southville Community Centre and School Southville Have Become the central features of a vibrant community atmosphere. There are many artists living in the area; During the annual Arts Trail They open to the public Their house and show and sell Their work. I believe all these reasons after some decade will create some consequences on the populace. When referring to World War II and the new and the new generation of 21st Century, surely there is a gap between these two generations the first question that arises is: how and where the most elderly occupy their time? Is there a link between these two generations? Having regard to the Digital Age where everything becomes an almost unlimited spid.


General information about the history of Southville

Southville

Minion Pro -7 pt/ Regular -(8.4 pt)

Helvetica -12 pt/ Regular-(14.4 pt)

Southville is an inner city ward of Bristol, England, situated on the south bank of the River Avon and northwest of Bedminster. Most of the area’s houses were built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries either for workers in the Bristol coal mining industry or the tobacco factories of W. D. & H. O. Wills, homes of the eponymous “Wills Girls”. The world headquarters of Imperial Tobacco, the world’s fourth largest international tobacco company, is still situated in the ward. Southville was also a centre for the tanning industry. The area was bombed in the second world war, with a large number

of streets losing one or more houses. Southville was the unintended target of the many short-falling bombs aimed at the adjoining dock facilities and traffic.


Southville becomes an interesting place due to geographic location and its history. The level has plenty of cultural transformations since World War II until the present day that attracted a lot of cultures, from students, immigrants and artists

The subsequent post-war rebuilding is noticeable on many streets, where the generic style of house building changes to modern construction. Infilling of wartime damage is, perhaps surprisingly, still continuing. The house price boom of the early 21st Century has seen new builds on existing vacant sites and on bombed sites which had been previously used for other activities such as pre-fabricated garages and car sales lots.

The map above explains in a very general seven starting points for multiple gaps will arise therefrom. I always keep in mind that my goal is sync with ages, social, find commonalities, divergences and try to correct the failures of the manner by both parties together.


MONDAY To make this photo I used : Digital camera CANON 5D lens 24 -105 MM F/ L IS USM

To understand if there is a Gap in one community, place or family I have to understand firt the nature or de identity of the fact I want to analyze.


OBJECTS FROM THE PLACE The area was green with a primary school very close, not many Old people walking around at this time of the day, but to noisy with the kids walking down the street.


From Southville Primary School


Between 4.30 pm - 5.30 pm the place starts to be more quite, less young people and more Old people walking around the streets, but sun the shops closed all the area becomes very quiet. Maybe because the families are now toguether inside their places.

To understand the population of Southville I thought necessary doing the first search through the Internet, looking for data related to the origin and history of the area. I used the internet because to get the information quickly. . The second step I thought it would be necessary walking in the area and spend some time with a sound recorder, digital camera, notebook and a pencil. The first impression I had when I arrived was that the vast majority of the population would be elderly, and somewhat isolated, because, besides the main road (North Street) where cars are seen practically passing through Southville. Then I sat an hour and a half in front of Tabacco Tactory which is situated in North Street to collect as much information. I started recording and annotating all the young and old peole who spent crossing at that location. Which to my surprise when it concludes that the end result contradicted the initial image I had

from the place. So from 3 to 4 o’clock in the afternoon the numbers indicated: Young people: 372 vs Old people: 280 These data were collected at the site of Southville more buzy at the time that most students come out of primary school. Both of the University which is located a very few minutes from the area and the basic school which located there close to Tabaco Fatory. At this time the childrens are happy, many of them holding hands with parents or grandparents others playing and sharing talks between Them, but of course, this is a crucial time for everybody’s happy because they get off work or school, after an exhausting day. after four and a half hours in the afternoon, I noticed that the space slowly starts to die and once again most people who passed me were elderly.

The graph above shows the data collected in the area, between 3 pm to 4:30 pm, in which we can identify the differences between age classes. analize believe that through this is a good start to begin to understand if there really is a gap between these classes or not.

Yesterday I returned to the place and wrote that people said to one when they passed me. What prompted me to do so due to the fact that the conversations between them are a way to identify socially and personally, In most of the time not only to them but also the place as well. I noticed also that the conversations varied dependently on the time of day I mean around 12 o’clock in the morningsee more middle-aged people (local workers) moving from one place to another due to the range of lunch3 o’clock in the afternoon the streets are filled with kids coming out of school about that time. At this the environment changes completely the streets are filled with joy and positive energy that does not last more than 20 minutes, at most 30. From time to time one or another group of university students, goes almost unnoticed as per almost without a trace. after 4:30 is the time that maybe if more people see the greatest five o’clock is approaching and the area finally starts to die and people go from an almost enigmatic, unnoticed. After having devoted several hours to observe the space and analyze the weight, the

type of people in different ages, appears to me a curious question. Why the tobacco factory area concentrates more money? This view is easily notable. when we walked north on the street easily notice that there there is a huge financial Gap in logic contribute to a cultural Gap, and thus creates a vicious circle. There concentrate all the good bars, they all are rebuild and very attractive the more we approach the north, sun we pass Tesco the area begins to deteriorate and people notice that are placed on towers or building blocks, the cultural and financial difference is definitely clear.


INFORMATION FROM THE PLACE

I went to the area and asked ten people what it meant for them the word Mind The Gap

When I was in the area to observe and analyze, I wrote six words from my first impression the ones I believe that represents the space, then I took six pictures which communicate exactly what I wrote.

During my visit in Southville I found that the place is very rich in charities and communities rellated to; art invents, children, old peoples, poor, rich and middle class people. affter studing the place in general I deicided to get more deap and start talking with these communities to found that is there is a Gap between communities, because is there where People from the local area are.

WHY MY INTEREST IN SOUTHVILLE?

My first step today was looking at local communities. I have started with the Southville Community Development Association (SCDA), this organisations is accredited with the Social Enterprise Mark. The second step I did was researching on the library and Internet information about them before orgnize one meeting.


12/10/2010 Dear Sir/Madam

I am a student currently attending the third year Graphic Design at the University Of West of England. This year we have been offered to a brief which consists in the investigation of a GAP...”Mind The Gap” is the name of the the brief, Its foundation is primarily to Investigate Social Cohesion Between the Generations.  This project focuses on how social networks might enhance our capacity to support the development of intergenerational relationships and how design can contribute to catalysing weak or hiterto absent connections to create change. Many older people are Vulnerable to loneliness isolation and the destrimental that can have their effect on mental health and welbeing. After remembering your talk from last year in my second year, I thought it would be interesting to this project involves in the area of Southville because the population of the area, the lifestyle and History since World War II until the present. For this reason I come to this request you’re cooperation in my collection of information in order to find out what are and how to break the gap between ages in the area of Southville.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course. Yours faithfully

Collected in these two pages of my notebook, I recorded the most important imformation of my conversation with Ben.


The football stadium is the biggest reason that breach any gap, because when there is a game people come together with friends and family and go see the game


To better understand my conversation with Mr. Ben, I thought it would be better to return to the site and gather much information but this time observing the environment and people in another point of view.


Notes form the place the and conversation with Ben

Above are some notes taken before and after my conversation with Ben on tobacco factory with Ben.


After my meeting with Ben I have tried to concentrate and reflect on our conversation Is there any Gap?


REFLECTION - SUMMARY Numerous theoretica lf frameworks have been developed to explain the gap between the possession of environmental knowledge and environmental awareness, and displaying pro-environmental behavior.


Why do people act environmentally and what are the barriers to pro-environmental behavior?

The result of my conversation with Ben not only contributed positively to my project, as also culturally enriched me with the history of the place, the people who lived there and still living of the changes that the place suffered from post-war until the present. He added that the introduction of the university in the area, the different cultures that came from virtually all parts of the world had somehow contributed to an improvement of the environment, (local) also mentioned that the introduction of new block somehow contributes to the isolation of some people mainly older people.

- More old people in the area (18% vs 64%) - In the past people used to meet in churchs or pubs, now can be can be a bit complicated to older people. - two people that he miss most of the time: 2 young girls (his grand-daugthers) Age - 8 years old/ 15 years old. - Walking in the area is difficult somethimes. - Young people are to noisy and they are allways in small groupes. - They don’t like to get involved with old people. - No where to seat on the place. - kids with parents in different city. - Some kids spend most of them time with baby sister. - Kids with parents in different city and somethimes in different country. - The main roud is to busy for older people. - Sometimes is nice to be alone. - On Sunday is really nice because I spend it with my Granddaughter. - People live in apartment blocks, can be negative reason for older people.

From my notebook - methodical process start from my meeting with Ben


Email sent from Bem after the metting with contacts of other local communities


The image above is an B5 booklet With the work that is donne in ACTA (community theatre) in Southville.

Sometimes when we receive information on exess we tend to get lost in thought and if we are not organized in the place of work entered a dead end that leads to deprassao so that we can never finish your project and totally lost control. Therefore I decided to stop completely because as a designer I have consience that I have to be on top of the situation and not below the situation. So I decided that I have the key on hands: 1 - The situation of Ben with his granddaughter 2 - The various communities in Southville. 3 - The relationship between them. 4 - The population of Southville (old and young people. From this starting point, I have decided that the best will be get in touch with one of the contacts that Ben sent to me by email also try to organise an interview with the coordinator of the association.

notice that the center did not know who this was very difficult to be found due to its geographical position. This center works with people of all ages, without borders, colors or geographical origin on the globe, trying to practice activities attract people from all directions, poor or rich.

hey john How are you? the interview went well? hey simpson, Yes I think so I am waiting for responses, however I will do a test film for them if you like wire with employment Desert’m out of here everything had gone well ... believe a guy has and to be calm, the kids come today to ca I tou full of work with a project just show you, and a book and a movie and next week want to see if recorde the video I need to back of your openiao edition of the film That’s OK, not problem... I write a character 7 years such an interview, then burn the grandfather who has psb 60: the question and is nice to do the things together? by type 2 monitors on the same screen when one tells the other listening you need two cameras really? You can simulate or record the all responses of the charater You mean record one and then the other one? and then you can film her grandfather alone without talking during the time the young girl is talking few seconds not enough? if you want to always have two on screen yes Make sure he is quiet time during the responses of other character divide it into two? yah, it’s a cool scene has to be otherwise fail this project yes you have to keep her grandfather quiet for a while and then do the same with her then I can edit the scenes, You can ask him to do some reactions kind smile shaking his head, etc. during this time I do not know how to put two videos on the same monitor, rotating simultaneously this is easy, so think before you do that by going and ladotipo meteres that if the chick on the left side of the screen qa po upset you put the right side of the camera and it stops the left side to cut the power after the space q is ahead when it split the screen. ok you understand my idea? I shoot when I have to divide the chamber into two when editing space that will not want to offense is not? then a final cut avera way of dragging the other so by recording a one side and another on Is it? There is a part of space you will not get into q edition not need to touch the guys right next to the screen pdoes give a little space, but you must always leave most of the space in front of them ... but this is easy two tracks of video then there should be a tool called crop which cuts the part that does not after he read the two videos at the same time yes poes one above the other in different layers of video cool I think it was worth

plan for the time lapse


Analisys and evaluation When speaking of the word “gap” if related in the social sense with a thorough analysis, one way of recognising it is observing the area to which we refer, in this case, area equals location so we can easily notice that the way that society is distributed it is acknowledged in different ways and the architecture is the starting point because it represent the social status, cultural, history and economic identity of the place in question. If we think about architecture we can assume that can be a way to unite or separate society community, because we see two buildings side by side we can easily identify the social class each accommodates. We can also identify if is an area of young people or older. For that we must first recognize the history that lies behind the entire process such as the town where they live, where is located the mixed society, history and the reasons because the picture represents society itself. I noticed that the rule is that people tent to stay within their social network, and that creates the gap. The brief I have is “mind the gap”, I will start with a question: “it is nice to do the things together?” to build a bridge creating a piece of work to communicate with the audience in a way that create a link to help shrink the gap for that I have to research the meaning of both, and then find a location to relate with the theme. After this analysis it is possible to make an in-depth collection of information to identify the Gap, in this case between different ages, mother-daughter, grandfather - grandson, I was really surprised to find out how many social gaps I observed in my everyday life, because we live in a busy way of life I noticed that most of the youth of today don’t take time to spent with their family. And parents themselves do not have time to spend with the children too as they work in different places, cities and in some cases different countries. My first step was to identify one area in Bristol and record information about its history, cultural background, etc. So I could conclude that Bristol society is divided culturally and economically ( ”gap”), that the communities are routed for different reasons such as age or culture. The first device I used to give my some direction was the internet, but I needed a more personal view. For that I necessary to find social organizations or communities, who were working directly with the location I chose. To record information I used photography but I also used voice recorder, written annotations and sketches made by me but also some from children I interacted with. I found out that this was the best way to communicate with others without interfering too much in their moment. It was fascinating to find out that they were willing to interact with me, so in that moment I asked the question (is nice to do the things together?) I realised that my initial interaction and the question worked as a bridge for something, maybe related with one personal problem, “gap”. The mainly medium I used to collect this evidence was Photography because captures the precise moment, that was exactly what I want to achieve. My aim was to portray the moment, which represented the ”gap” in the society. After my research I decided to gather all the information, and put it all together in a book to show the evolution of the main process, creating a research book. With the outcomes I was able to conclude that Southville area somewhat was separated from the rest of the city for several reasons, the more obvious one the river; it’s history and time itself. I made a time lapse using one of the persons I have spooked with to conclude my research. The idea is to call older people such a parents or Grand-parents to give more attention to the young generation because grand majority don,t have family contact. They spend most of them time at school, on the street or on internet in the cybernetic reality. With this short film I want to shok specialy their parents beliving that in this way I will change their point of view and alert them to this very serious reality.

On this image from the old Tabaco factory) Southville I have been looking at the architecture on the place to find, relate and compare the New and Old architecture if there is any gap or what’s the relationship between and how they combine together without afecting the ennvironment.
