Today’s workshop was based in the Model and Niland Galleries, Sligo, where there is currently an exhibition of landscape paintings from the West of Ireland.

Today we looked at a few different examples of representing ‘landscape’ and ‘place’ – where the difference between the two might be understood as a place to look at versus a place to be in and experience.  This included painting, photography, prints, aerial and digital photography, computer-generated imagery, GPS, postacrds, panoramic wallpaper, frescoes, vedutas and maps.

The rest of the workshop focused on examples of mapmaking and ways of thinking about how to map places. This included expanded ways of thinking about what maps might be or be made up of, and will continue next week.
