SPACE MAPPING

5.10.15

This short session was spent reviewing out maps of the Sheffield community. We observed our sketches and considered portraying scales of space; inside, outside and in-between; and also added photographs taken of the area so the class could understand our maps a bit better. We added a colour key so other students could clearly see what were buildings, roads, greenery etc. I found this activity very beneficial as you get to learn different ways of thinking by seeing how others observe and what materials others choose to use and why. It is activities like this which eventually creative the perfect designer, as by having gained inspiration from lots of different work gives you the opportunity to experiment a wide variety of techniques. We walked around each groups tables and discussed where they had chosen to study their map and why they used the techniques and materials they used.

An example of another groups approach to map drawing. This group chose to really focus on the materials and textures found around Sheffield train station. The mixture of old and new around this area is fascinating, and shows the transformation of Sheffield into a young, vibrant new city.
