What if instead of boring roads and rivers maps showed us the smells, sounds, tastes, and feelings we experience?
Mix psychology with geography and maps and you have PsychoGeography: the art and science of using our bodies to collect (and map) all sorts of interesting and important stuff about the world, things that don’t normally get mapped.
In this class you will work in small groups to collect and map smells, textures, sounds, tastes, and emotions in random walks through the environment – in rain or sun. You will come to appreciate your ability to notice all sorts of things about the world around you that you may not normally pay attention to, and you will make maps of this weird stuff to share with your friends, family, and the world.
