Map 03


In this map we are evoking part of the sensory landscape that has emerged from our findings focusing on smell, sound and touch. It is important to highlight that personal background such as age, bodily ability, gender and ethnicity informs our particular sensing of place, as well as subjective memories and the practices we are involved in when interacting with an area. Whether we are cycling a bike through heavy traffic, rushing for food at lunchbreak, going clubbing with a group of friends or visiting the area for its historical attractions our bodies will be tuned into perceiving the environment in certain ways. Depending on our relationship to a place some sensory features intensify while others recede. We have tried to evoke this with the different applications on this map. To further explore how different social groups or individuals experience Smithfield follow one of the personas in Map 04.
