join a workshop of creative thinking and art making
— we are going to make mappings, combining drawing, holograms and photographic collage to explore our relationships to place, memory and experience –
A community engagement commission to foster dialogue about how we construct impressions of space and place.
Mapping Place will be guided by Martina Mrongovius, Creative Director of the Center for Holographic Arts and artist who works with holographic images, maps, and participatory experience.
The navigation of our environment and the folding of space or felling of being lost, has driven me to seek ways to express the experience of space and how we conceptualize place.
This workshop is a collaborative art making project, that follows a series of Martina’s collaborative mapping projects including ‘we’re all looking’ – holograms from photographic formations in Melbourne, 2007; ‘Holoscape‘ with Nick Normal – a holographic mapping of uploaded photos at ConFlux festival; ‘samulung geographischer momente’ [A collection of geographical moments] – annotated open street map Wuppertal Germany, 2011; ‘Around the Table’ a mapping of food, conversation and memories Kaohsiung, Taiwan 2012
