The Collage Seaside
“Collage is simultaneously innocent and devious.” Colin Rowe and Red Koetter
The above schizocartographic image was made by cutting photos of Hunstanton from various brochures and leaflets that advertise the seaside town. The pasted words and phrases are mostly popular terms that refer to seaside resorts, but were actually taken from the adverts of businesses or organisations located in the area. The other terms refer to the analysis and theory of urban space and have been added digitally. The quotes are comments on urban space by the following:
1 - Iain Sinclair
2 - Brian Jarvis
3 - Felix Guattari
4 - David Harvey
5 - Henri Lefebvre
This 'map' has been named after the book Collage City by Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter. It has been created for the following project 'Reading the Arcades/Reading the Promenades'.
