(re)imagining Parks in Colyton

this workshop was ALL about parks. For inspiration, we walked down to the park on the corner of Hough and Shepherd streets in Colyton. 

under the tutelage of Jacqueline Olivetti and Matte Rochford we created messages for the park, setting up quite literally ‘a dialogue between people and place’ (matte). the park whispered a reply, but I missed that because I was taking photographs.


Back at the Neighbourhood Centre, we played with the names of parks – Edward (TED) Little Reserve became (Red Dew) Rest a Little. We came up with entirely new names, names that made sense to us, that served our memory or another’s. We also imagined a Nesian Park and a park of Chaplin’s Muse.

Next week, we’ll imagine in sound.
