Folkestonomy

Mobile mapping station

The FOLKESTONOMY float (a converted milk float) travelled to different public places in Folkestone throughout the summer, alongside the route of the twenty-two Triennial commissions, inviting passers-by and visitors to trace and map their own links, encounters and interests with the wider field of the Triennial and the town of Folkestone. The float also carries the visual and technical equipment to facilitate the mapping on site. The information collected in and by the public, directly feeds into the FOLKESTONOMY map Folkestone, indexing a variety of the town’s different informal and formal cultural spaces, interests and networks. The idea is to sketch and show an existing and extending cultural space that is important, but currently less visible than others.
