AROUND ST. DENYS
Sewing Routes is an ongoing project about Subjective Mapping experimentation, which is the result of some of my walks around Southampton, as part of my “get to use process” to this city where I’m currently based. I discover fascinating layers to connect with in between of my daily life paths. Thus, these illustrations are interpretations of what influenced my experience of navigation in a particular time, through those places: colours that belong to them or are evoked by, landmarks, people, situations and micro-stories that I could have heard, read or created about them.
So far I have done two series of five 23 x 23 cm watercolour and ink illustrations: “Around Highfield” and “Around St. Denys”, two of the neighborhoods that I have lived in this town. I also include a folded paper which is my travel journey. There I put down my general thoughts, impressions, even objects that I collect along each walk. I also included selected pictures that complement my subjective research on the city. I also included a regular map where you can see the locations and the routes that this project encompasses (link below).
