“Lines can navigate the space of potential between what is ‘no longer’ but also ‘not yet’.”
Tim Ingold, Redrawing Anthropology, 2011
Through a guided workshop, students will explore methods of visualising the multiscalar narratives of place. Material sourced from the Newcastle Living Histories Collection will be utilised to develop a series of graphic assemblages that help to situate a place or site within a complex cultural landscape. Drawing from methods of graphic anthropology and theories of material culture, such representations offer a way in which the archive of history may be brought into the cultural currency of the present.
