— Maps, territories, conflict

12:30 — Lunch

14:00 — Fieldtrip: Border stone meets elephant
— Pierre and Femke introduce three possible approaches in response to a specific cartographic collision. We’ll form three groups, to develop each a mini-prototype.
As a startingpoint, we invite each group to think with us about (one of) the following questions:
— Could we imagine how reverse placement could bring another approach to toponomy?
— What if the visualisation of geographic data would allow for tension and conflict to become visible?
— How to imagine thresholds as relational parameters, rather than as binary borders?
(Research/discussion materials will be provided)
