Picturing Place
Picturing Place is an interdisciplinary research project which critically explores the role of images and image-production in processes of urban change. It explores how images of cities – e.g. plans, maps, renderings of projected future spaces – and images in cities – e.g. billboards, community murals – influence urban change and perceptions of place. The project aims to encourage discussion amongst a wide range of urban citizens and practitioners about the roles that visual languages have in the production of the built environment, and the interactive relationships between images and cities. The project includes an online image catalogue which will expand as it progresses. A series of panel discussions are also taking place with invited contributions from a range of speakers with different interests/roles in the city and the making and interpretation of images. The initial launch event took place at the This is Not a Gateway festival, 2009, and a second panel took place at Harvard Graduate School of Design in September 2010. The Picturing Place catalogue has also been exhibited as part of UCL's Cities Methodologies exhibition, 2010, and presented at Central St Martin's School of Art and Design, and as part of the ESRC-funded 'Visual Dialogues' Early Careers Network, University of Hertfordshire, 2009. The long term aim of this project is a multi-sited exhibition and a conference. Support has been provided by UCL (Urban Laboratory, Bartlett School of Architecture Research Fund) and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (Research Office).
