Co-creating giant, 3D, maps out of paper. These may take the form of participatory installations, drop in workshops, sets for performances, videos, chats, starting points for manifesto making/ other projects.
Typically, the maps including paper objects made by participants, photographs, archival / art objects from relevant collections, written questions/observations. They have also included performances, songs, bubble blowing and biscuits. Through mapping a group collects, shares, plays with and celebrates the social, cultural and emotional life / heritage / future(s) of a place. Places, people &ideas all appear as points on the maps.
Both sets of images below are from a Mapping workshop for The National Trust (Trust New Art) at Crow Park, 2019, working alongside residents of Keswick. For more examples of mapping in Kitt's practice see: Darlo to 'Boro
