I was thinking it would be a good idea to create a map with all the places we have been and then set up a network of spaces that abstractly are connected because of our lab sessions. The map will be interactive so if you click on the first location (Goldsmiths educational building) then a sentence will appear like “some kind of location public” or something like that*; the idea it to play with the initials SKOLP (Some Kind Of Lab Project) and then form sentences more or less appropriate for the location. I don’t really know how to make a map but I think there are many links in internet to do it!!
I made a stencil that will be stamped near all the places we have been, so somehow it materialises our traces. The stencil as you will see it’s a set of cutlery (spoon, fork and knife) –related to the fact that we are going to have lunch every session- and a sentence: “follow skolp…” since we are moving and they have to follow us! ! I was thinking with Vikki to leave the firt mark in Godsmiths this thursday after the guest lecture when the light is gone! if anyone wants to join, that would be great!

Moreover, I did some research on “SKOLP” and surprisingly there was an explorer of the Columbus time named Johannes Skolp that discovered some land in North America. The legend says that he discovered North America before Columbus but there is a mystery aura around his figure…!
