Urban Earth on US Public Radio
Just listening to Dan Ellison talk on US Public Radio from last night.
You can download an mp3 of the talk, which I strongly recommend that you do.
Dan starts by referring to Doreen Massey and her work on perceptions of urban spaces and also the representation of places. He started by walking across Salisbury and exploring its ecological footprint.
He also talked about the issue of surveillance, and the issues with photography, and how he worked out the route for the walks based on inequality.
Photograph taken every 8 paces, and then turned into stop-motion films.
Also explored school geography, and how the media over-represents certain areas of cities.
Online CPD.... I urge you to listen !
