Perception of Place

Film program


3–7 Sep 2022

Join us for an exploratory mapping project that investigates the aesthetics of cartography and its capacity to tell stories, communicate ideas and evoke the senses.

'A Walk in the Park' and 'Liminal Emotions', are two works that explored temporal and emotional responses to the Edinburgh Gardens, Fitzroy North. The focus of this project is the perception of place, the transitory nature of that perception and the role maps might play in enhancing that perception.
