Through the act of large-scale cartographic drawing and writing, this participatory installation invites visitors to take part in telling the everyday stories of Southwark as well as exploring possible futures for the local area.
Though inspired by mapping, the event encourages a messier approach to city planning, celebrating improvised creativity, spontaneity, failure, diversity and unpredictability. The generated work aims to trigger new questions regarding our lives within the city and enable the collective imagination of a playful future narrative for Southwark.
Emilie Loiseleur is a graphic and spatial designer. She uses story-telling as a visual tool to explore different ways to make visible that which is there but goes unnoticed, or that which should be there, but isn’t.
