Project —

My project I’ve walked all the streets of Olot’ proposes taking seven days to walk all the streets of the town creating a subjective and vivencial narrative of its urban and social fabric. To segment the town in a manual and totally unscientific way, and to establish the steps by which it can be walked street by street. Narration is the main axis of the story, which —as if reading a musical score— shows the fabric of the town of Olot. An empirical urbanism which reclaims the field diary and emotional mapping as tools with which to narrate.
