Embodied Mapping forged connections across scales of public and private. The residency connected communities by creating a mapping system that uncovered hidden synchronicities, intersections, and potentialities about the neighborhood that are not readily apparent or accessed at the street level. The collaborators’ process included charrettes, collecting, book making, and other ways of experimenting with mapping through the body. These practices derived from architecture, oral history, visual arts, performance, and dance.
