And also, since I last blogged, I had the absolute privilege to work with Third Angel (who I am also on the board of) on their brilliant, generous, durational Story Map piece. I helped out as a documenter/researcher, and you can see the whole of the content from the day, including audio, videos and images over at the dedicated tumblog/site http://whatiheardabouttheworld.co.uk/. The What I Heard About the World Story Map, was a 12 hour attempt to map every country in the world with a story of a ‘fake, replica. or stand in’. Blurb:
An attempt to map the entire world, alphabetically, in a day. To name every country in its own language, and to collect a story for every country, and to place it, correctly, on the map, from memory. Using cardboard, paper, pens and post-it notes, and with the help of the audience, Third Angel and mala voadora build a portrait of the world, as it was, as it is now, and as it might be in the future.
You can see a slideshow of the pictures I took below, or go and read Alex’s seriously brilliant account of the day. Do it, do it now.
