I’m having a fantastic time at the GPS workshop I’m leading at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and I think the participants are too. It’s very stimulating indeed to be in a room with such inquisitive, interesting and intelligent people but it’s daunting too. I really hope I didn’t put them off when I couldn’t get a mac to recognise a usb-to-serial converter I use to plug my Garmin eTrex in with. Will set that right tomorrow.
I promised that I would link to some of the essays I gathered together, so here they are:
- Coco Fusco Questioning the Frame – Thoughts about maps and spatial logic in the global present
- Guy Debord Introduction to a Critique of Urban Geography
- Ben Russell The Headmap Manifesto (download only)
Time to hit the sack to be bright for day two. I’ll post more documentation later when I can focus (and I don’t mean concentrate, I really mean focus).
