Event Details

Free Event


 Thurs. Oct 17

 The Mac Varsity Club 301 & 302 | 6 p.m.

Our workshop empowers participants to create and upload photographic documentation of overlooked communities to Google maps, building a public document of the community from within. The half day workshop can be adapted for any age and participants may use any level of digital camera. We begin with a short presentation on work with locative media and conceptual documentary projects. Participants then are given a shooting assignment based on local areas absent or overlooked in Google StreetView. We then aggregate the images using Google’s image uploader, carefully geotagging them. Within a few weeks, Google’s search engine picks these images up and they appear on Google Maps.
