Practice led Research on the socio political impact of participatory mapping using computer simulations and collage .
My Research is based between Transtechnology Research group at Plymouth University and my studio in Pernyn Cornwall. A key component to my research is reflecting on a Participatory Mapping project I produced in Penryn, in 2016, called Re-Imagine Your Town . Reflections and future plans for further particpatory mapping projects are now informed by the the ideas of Henri Bergosn , on Matter and Memory , Guy Debord , on the society of the spectacle and Brian Massumi . Massumi is philosopher and social theorist, alive and kicking, who gives access to concepts of Bergson and Deleuze that I would otherwise find difficult to grasp.
Re-Imagine Your Town began by turning a vacant shop in the heart of Penryn into a pop up Re-imagine your town workshop space,. Here residents began to create an interactive map and archive of their town’s past, present and future. This project remains a central part to my research. My hope is that my current research will underpin future participatory mapping projects and inform how i use technology as a tool for facilitation
