10 11 URBAN COME-ON’S #4 by Oliver Froome-Lewis and Penelope Plaza Creating a new ‘field’ between neighbourhoods presents an un-common opportunity to nurture a stimulating social infrastructure for creative leisure. The act of commoning requires new modes of receiv- ing, rewarding and extending existing patterns of living to succeed. We see this un-common ground as an Active Territory that can catalyse meaningful, yet subtle, connections through culture understood as a collective social being. Our workshop will engage in propositional map-making, enabling students to create opportu- nities for micro-scale, pre-figurative, urban inter- ventions - unlocking new modes of urban commons. Propositional maps are maps with behavioural intent, URBAN COME-ON’S, producing a new, free flowing, territory that can be travelled in the imagination, in reality, or in both concurrently. Such forms of map pro- pose new co-dependencies and dialogues between the imagination, expectations and experience. Plunging into creative walking, mapping and map-making processes, converting the unconvention- al data revealed into a propositional-map-scape and proposing sites for micro-interventions, will create an Immersive Graphic-Manifesto for Commoning. Working together we will combine our propositional maps and reveal opportunities for re-thinking cultural milieus and sharing life’s micro-pleasures. Sound as a Common Language #5 by Phoebe Brady Sound comes and goes, it can be immersive and pervasive and even perceived when out of sight. Vision however, is fixed by a frame of view. When both are mapped, their patterns overlap but never completely correspond. The boundaries of the son- ic and visual are rarely identical, but together they register atmosphere, and impress our understand- ing of place. 1 We cannot study or plan for the city without taking into account multiple ways of seeing. In this workshop we will design participative exercises, inventing play- ful methods that capture sound and space to consider how the sonic landscape can inform the new and com- mon infrastructures of the over-the-ring project. Through guided and unguided wanderings, we will study the soundscapes of the two communities, fo- cusing on the transitional space between each neigh- borhood and the ring road. Participants - students and residents, are invited to listen, observe and record. We will investigate alternative forms of mapping that narrate the common spaces experienced, from both physical and phenomenal perspectives. As an urban study, we will explore the aural reality of space in the modern city and its impact on our shared envi- ronments. The tools of enquiry are recordings and drawings - observation through the eye and ear. In laboratory sessions, participants will together recreate the sonic landscapes to produce a kind of noisy psychogeo- graphic map. These dimensional interpretations will invite a closer look at adjacent experiences in the studied soundscapes and further, will bring attention to the potential that sound has to change how we un- derstand, design and transform the public realm. 1 Toop, David, The Art of Noise Tate etc, Article January 1 2015 Image 01 Max Neuhas Listen_Brooklyn Bridge-soundwalk poster (1976) Image 02 Christine Sun Kim, “a map of a sound as a space” (2016) Image 03 Law rence Halprin_Untitled (1970) 1 2 3
