PROVIDENCE : A MOSAIC
Walking a route consisting of fifteen stops from Providence Library to Wayland Square via Waterman Street, our group aggregated data pertaining to multiple sensory categories: visual, color, kinetic, auditory, conversation, and tactile, as well as mood/atmosphere.
After representing the data through various layers of visual maps as a second phase, we transformed our information and experience into a grid system overlaying a map of Providence. These cells serve as sensory windows/portals. We made manipulations, graphics, and visualizers for each location, capturing an instinctive and visceral representation of the surrounding environment.
Together, these cells layered on the Providence map form a fragmented cityscape that is varied and multisensory.
