Speculative Landscape: Shaping the View: Understanding Landscape through Illustration: 7th International Illustration Research/Journal of Illustration Symposium

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

An exhibition and website, presented at the Shaping the View: Understanding Landscape through Illustration, 7th International Illustration Research/Journal of Illustration Symposium.

The exhibition and website documents a research project with students and staff of Illustration, Edinburgh College of Art. Individuals responded to random locations around Edinburgh, initially by making reportage illustrations and collecting data for visualisations. From these enquiries the illustrators went on to make speculative landscapes; visualising landscapes of the future projecting upon issues of climate, society and economics. Over 100 illustrations are on the website., 30 were presented as artefacts in a cabinet as part of the Symposium exhibition. The project acts as an ongoing teaching tool as well as demonstrating a new relationship between reportage, datavisualisation and design fictions.
