plastiCities/SKINN workshop – May 12th 2012

We explored Shalesmoor and Kelham Island, one of Sheffield’s most interesting areas, through an afternoon workshop of walks and mapping.

The focus was on ways of interpreting the city: what draws us to particular elements of the city? Why do we feel uncomfortable walking down a particular stretch of the road? Why are there streets where one side is derelict and another is full of new developments?

The workshop investigated the hidden coding of the area by mapping and juxtaposing descriptive sensual observations and factual, numerical data that is usually hidden from our eye.
