Experimental reflections on methods to approach the unknown

Within the two landusepoetics field trips I am performing a search for strategies to approach the unknown. Attempting both to ask questions and learn, I used media and methods I'm familiar with in an unfamiliar way, seeking ways to abandon the idea of cohesive production and instead work experimentally.

land use poetics , is an artistic research initiative gathering artists, architects and urban theorists for landscape experiments and interventions. land use poetics was initiated in 2009 by Maria Hellström Reimer and up to now has organized two workshops with adjacent exhibitions, the first in Malmö-Lund, Sweden and the second in Thanet (Margate), UK.

The point of departure of the network is the intense, arts-based and situated actualization and discussion of territorial and cartographic questions. In 2011 land use poetics published a collection of combined visual and textual essays and reports. In the moment they we are preparing a new exploration.
