Relational Mapping

Exploring Glasgow as a case study, Relational Mapping considers how the visual language of mapping can express relationships overlooked by a solely geographical focus. When traversing urban spaces, particular materials appear repeatedly in different social, political, and historical contexts, forming both the literal and metaphorical ‘fabric’ of the city. By treating these materials as a lens through which to explore and organise the urban environment, Relational Mapping highlights the temporal and socio-political relationships inseparable from these spaces.
