As part of Into the Great Wide Open’s 2014 festival, I ran a project called Camping Mapping, which intricately mapped the interactions and clashes between nature and culture on the campsite.
The aim of the project was to give the ITGWO festival-goers a renewed appreciation of the beauty and complexity of things that are ostensibly insignificant or irritating.
Some examples of things we mapped included cigarette butts, food waste, blades of grass between the tiles, the colors of shoes, and dead animals. All the results were visualized through infographics and displayed around the campsite.
I am grateful for the help of volunteers, the theater group Fien and Josjah Kunkeler.
