making a silence map


Picture by Werkplaats voor de Stilte (Ingrid Bal)
In this final workshop we explored the actual space of the future silence
space. We used the social mapping method called MAPit, developed by the
researchers of the Media & Design Academy in Genk (B), visit for more information. It’s an intuitive and visual way
to think about a problem. In this case the problem was: what constitutes a
silence place, what do we think should be present in such a space. In the
picture you see the final version of our map. As I’ve got a soft spot for maps I really enjoyed working with this flexible
mapping tool. Apart from visualising it also makes discussion very easy.
