A world that I love(d)

” A World that I Love(d) – a collaborative exploration of locale”  is a project focusing on community engagement, location, locale, and collective memory. Surrounding one specific site, I had 8 participants with knowledge and experience of the site, complete 3 different tasks to describe and recount their memories. Some are vastly different, and some are very similar; but they were completed with no conferring between participants. We chose to keep the participants anonymous (only recognisable by initials), and the site name + location is redacted.

The site is sacred and special. It does not deserve the treatment it has received these past few years, and this project is almost a last effort to keep it alive.

An image of a printed booklet sitting on a shelf. The shelf looks worn with age and distress. The booklet is an off-white, cream colour, with a title and other text on the front. The text reads: "A world that I love(d), a collaborative exploration of locale." The shelf is installed on a bumpy, wood-chip textured wall.
