// Contradictory landscape Through my research I have found out that this landscape around Nikel is really special, tragic, emotional and contradictory. It has many different layers of interaction and the overlapping of these different landscapes really changes depending on how we define what spaces are interconnected and form landscapes that are overlapping each other. Through this time of research and doing exercises of mapping the landscape it’s possible to see how all things in this landscape are equal and should be taken into consideration. It’s important to know what’s going on in the landscape, where things come from and how things interact. These spaces are all equally important to understand the landscape, and it’s important to look at situasions going on in the spaces with openness and different kind of hats on our head to see it from different angles and points of view. In this mapping exercise I’m using pervious investigations that I’ve done on the landscape and the spaces in them to find new ways of seeing and finding out how this landscape in Nikel is overlapping. After the methodological and descriptive investigation on the spaces I had defined, I was able to see clearly how spaces from different landscapes were interconnected in a really logical way. I started to put the spaces together and defining new landscapes and then look at how they are overlapping each other in different ways.

This map shows the location of the landscapes I had defined in the beginning of my research. It shows the locations, where things are placed in the landscape and how the defined landscapes meet and overlap.

These spaces are all equally important to understand the landscape, and it’s important to look at situasions going on in the spaces with openness and different kind of hats on our head to see it from different angles and points of view.


After longer research I started to see how it’s possible to define other landscapes by connecting other spaces together like The filter space, The crude space and The dark spase and then form The extracted Landscape. By doing this the landscape is viewed from a different angle, and the mapping starts to show more interconnections.

This is a good method to find and see situations, overlappings and connections in the landscape where research is being done. There are always multiple entry points and views on things and this method makes it possible to see them and find more information than that is visible in the beginning. This mapping shows how the landscape in Nikel is detachable and connectable. But it takes a really long time to revers the situation in Nikel to it’s original stage if possible.

Nicel is a place up north that is easy to forget and especially after some time when the industry is closed down. This landscape should not be forgotten, this tragedy should be in front of people faces to remember and lern from.
