Furthering an interest in the uncanniness between different cities and spaces, this research project aims to investigate Berlin’s popular city culture by dismantling every-day ways of navigating through it. I will set myself workshops that disorientate the process of exploring a new city, affecting the monitoring and controlling of movement between spaces. Drawing and mapping tools will be used to document these journeys which will then be collated inside a book, taking the reader through the city just as I do; highlighting the subtle, yet crucial details that I believe make up this city.
Based in the UK, Jordan Cook is an artist and illustrator who is often working afoot, drawing and making with a focused and critical visual language. His work is concerned in the history of the built environment and its relationship with people, using drawing as a tool to document and narrate the growth of urban change. His previous solo show ‘Pull Handle & Push Door To Open’ took the thinking behind defensive architecture into the objects that we interact with on a daily basis. Recognising our dependency on the built environment also emphasises the objects dependency on its user, thus illustrating the idea of the ‘emotional object’.
