Abstract: YOU ARE YOUR OWN TIMEKEEPER considers the landscape of Northampton as a construct, exploring ‘place identity’ of the town through the interactions between a nineteenth-century boot and shoe factory and its inhabitants (or lack of). The activities and processes that have taken place, or are planned to take place within the space, are seen as intrinsic in etching and moulding the landscape of Northampton, with the inquiry placing the building at the meta-geographical centre of the town – a location of activity or non-activity metaphorically representing Northampton
Additional Information: Exchange is a research exchange on approaches and responses to 'landscape' between the University of Plymouth (Land, Water and the Visual Arts research group) and the University of Northampton
Uncontrolled Keywords: Research; landscape; place; place identity; critical graphic design; diaspora; community
