After a hiatus of almost nine months, an exploratory trip to Scotland’s capital is needed, essential to refresh my understanding of a city I had last lived and worked in prior to studies at Cambridge.
The trip is full of exploratory meetings with key stakeholders of the project (which will be logged on this blog), from academics to artists to Scottish Nationalist think tanks. Fieldwork for the ‘Atlas’ portion of extensive urban analysis will also be carried out across the four day trip.
Ultimately, this a chance to assess the site in person for the first time since starting Notional Identities, make preliminary sketches and try and understand how to approach documenting the unique nuances of this incredible site.
Hello again, Auld Reekie!
