LONDON The Information Capital, is a book I happened to stumble across in the library the other day. It contains all sorts of diagrams, which gives new meaning to the word “map”. Many different “maps” are presented in different ways, and display a lot of different types of information about London. The book is very cleverly put together, some pages containing tracing paper, so that you can see the before and after effects.
Later, I went out and stood by Aldgate Station entrance, filming a short video of the cars and people passing by. I also recorded the sounds I heard.
From doing these things I realise how many ideas I could have for the Map of Me, the difficulty is choosing a solid idea, developing and expanding on it and sticking with it.
