City Sets Workshop kick-off

The City Sets workshop started yesterday (5.03) with an attendance of 16 enthusiastic students. After Marja Seligers’ (“Visual methods in urban ethnography”) and Mika Tuomolas’ (“Narrative structural methods for the stories in the city”) lectures, the students were arranged into multidisciplinary groups provided with photographic equipment and a map of the city underground metro.

The students will select a metro station and scout their location with four focus points in mind: Design objects, persons, story/event and cityscapes.

This will provoke students to act instinctively and follow their senses. To discuss among themselves the character of the place they have chosen and observed, the type of people they have captured on film and the cityscapes.
