by the age of eight we will know a patch of ground in a detail we will never know anywhere again Professor Mike Pearson, University of Wales, Aberystwyth

in this practical workshop we will do the following: examine our relationship with the environment and spaces we live in discuss how digital technology can enable children to explore the relationship they have with their environment as well as their own sense of self and belonging explore our own piece of landscape and respond to it using digital technology

how do you see your environment?

maps commonly show static landscape and architecture, they exclude those that inhabit the place

open ourselves and our cities up to the possibilities of experiencing higher moments of life

create a map of your space: don’t be objective include what you don’t like as well as what you like use cameras, sound recorders, mobile phones to record your impressions think about how you will present your collected material
