Workshop Description


This workshop aims to instigate a discussion on how to represent landscape, from the understanding that how we represent a landscape circumscribes our future actions on it; what we see determines how we act.


This study will examine 2 specific types of representation – the historical picturesque and the contemporary map - thinking critically about their production and their application – and will apply this thinking to 2 sites in Dublin's outskirts, each with different landscape qualities.


The end product is projected as a series of new folding maps - a cross-fertilisation of the map and the picture and a synthesis of the visual and performative aspects of landscape.


This project will take place over 4 weeks in June/July, with 1-2 days of participation per week.
