my speculation on the city begins as an emotional rollercoaster from my reflection where my approach was one of a multisensory study, and where i expressed my feelings through a piece of writing while describing my senses.
this journey starts at epping forest: a field trip in a late summer day which consisted of exploring and finding ourselves within nature. as an escape to the normality of the city life, this trip aimed to a realisation of how the human disrupts the natural habitat of other living organisms. throughout this hike, it was noted that the context of a natural environment can have a remarkable impact on the human’s mental health, whether it’s done through sounds, through brise, through its soothing colour pallet, or even through the interaction and care the human has towards the organisms around them. it was notable to see how each individual retreats to this space as a way of comforting their routines and becoming more and more aware of the impact that nature and its contextual characteristics have on one’s behaviour.
upon this visit, it was tasked to have a moment of self-realisation and to quiz ourselves on 3 different categories to adjective our discoveries based on our individual actions and preferences delicate: i'd rather be cardboard; i think in squiggles; i am more attracted to durability empathetic: little and often; house cat; i eat for pleasure caring: i always turn up on time; unfamiliar places are to be discovered with others
and lastly to identify how to each individual would choose their means of construction or detail elements: I would categorise my material library by durability + structural integrity
