Sharon Sekhon will briefly review of A People’s Guide to LA (2004); The Holiday Bowl History Project (2004); The Evergreen Cemetery History Project (2009); among others. Each example provides varying levels of new media. Participants will work on interactive mapping exercises that will be shared with the workshop at the end. Participants should come prepared to observe and record the world around them (example: camera, sketchbook, journal, video camera). You will be asked to share your observations and work with Sekhon in order to create a memory map of the day’s experience at www.the-memory-bank-project.com.
