Speculative cartographies: Experiments in mapping Strijp-S
Meeting Grounds Edition #2 seeks to examine Strijp-S as a composite public domain that bridges public and private, space and non-space and embodies generation and generation of tangible and intangible heritage. For the first workshop in this edition, we proudly present a collaboration with architect Paloma García in Speculative Cartographies: Experiments in Mapping Strijp S.
Maps are not exact representations of reality, even though they are often represented as such. Cartographies and maps are extremely powerful communication tools which narrate reality with a unique vision of space. We inhabit public space, we use it, we go through it, we modify it but we rarely map it.
Speculative Cartographies: Experiments in mapping Strijp S is a workshop run by Paloma García that explores the potential of maps as elements of socio-political communication and definition of public space. We will analyze, extract, redefine and produce new maps of Strip S that will reveal the key parameters that determine public and private spaces. We will develop new visual codes to share and interpret our own speculative maps of the area. This workshop will explore Strip S without moving from space but travelling through its cartographies.
