"Mapping"
 
 
a project brought to life for the Webists by Susan Graves, Nottingham / London
 
 
 
"I know I have already mentioned my contacts in Nottingham, but I have been waiting to have a meeting with Jim from the Creative Collaborations Project who works with New Media, digital technology and its potential creative uses.
 
I have had a meeting with Jim and he has asked me to prepare a brief to put to Webists for them to contribute to a "Live Streamer Event" happening between Nottingham and Leeds. It is part of the 3 cities project which may attract some funding etc, but we need a product which includes collaborations of different artists. He would be able to:-
 
a) curate an exhibition;
b) Use a Beamer to exhibit on an external surface;
c) Live Stream the event as it happens in Leeds.
 
His idea was for a theme, and the theme would be:- MAPPING:
 
Mapping cities; mapping spaces; mapping personal history; mapping bodies; mapping minds;
Or you could go further by mapping original sketches through to the final piece of work.
