Experiential map of Rome
** Exhibited in the Rome: Continuity and Change exhibition (Yale School of Architecture Gallery, 2014)
The Experiential Map of Rome is the culmination of research and observation from the 2014 Rome: Continuity and Change travel fellowship program supported by the Yale School of Architecture.
The project is an analysis of personal experiential perception of the urban environment of Rome. Walking through Rome, I mapped my intuitive, non-quantitative movements through the city on site. Throughout the project, special focus and attention were paid to how non-quantifiable factors, perception, and social presence influenced my decision-making.
The resulting narrative map of the city foregoes absolute geographic scale in order to highlight relative perceptive and experiential scales instead.
