To identify societal – or systemic – problems, we believe cartography and ethnographic to be some of the most effective and enlightening methods. Bearing this in mind, we sent the students to the district today to gather data about people, interaction, places, and so forth.
After a half-day ethnographic exercise in Yuzhnoportovy, the participants returned to Strelka with numerous problems and challenges identified there. Main focus was on people, spaces, and technologies, and interactions between these. As a result, the participants made their first map of Yuzhnoportovy with problems mapped on it.
