Greetings everyone. I look forward to meeting you all next week. I Am currently in the middle of a PhD. I have been exploring systems of ‘durational’ stewardship as an ethical aesthetic response to an uncertain and unsustainable future in Houghton Bay, Wellington, NZ, where I live. I do this by deploying a dialogical approach when engaging with neighbours which has generated several projects. A large event (an archaeological dig) is planned for this summer. It will be carried out by an Archaeologist on the rubbish tip of the first diary farm. The site is beside a park, that was built on a city rubbish tip (landfill). As artefacts are uncovered, traces leading to angles, cross-overs and overlays will emerge using lime wash in the park, and artefacts discovered in the farm tip will be laid over the city tip.
When creating diagrams I always want to put myself in, not at the edge or outside the zone, but somewhere near the middle. However they never seem to work. So a question that i often ask is, what does a diagram look like from within?
