Bits of Wolves - scratching the surface

February 2, 2018 by Jayne Murray   Comments (0)

A while ago I found a map of Wolves and taking off the detail, but leaving the boundaries left an image that looked a lot like a flower. I left it for a bit, but have now returned to it as a basis for finding a spot to locate my project in. Yesterday I used it as a start point to leaving the university and exploring a bit, or maybe 3 small bits of the city. The first took in NewHampton Road, and West Park, second the middle of the ring road where the skate park is sunk into a meeting of subways at a roundabout and near 'the way' youth centre, and lastly to blakenhall, as far as Phoenix Park. In the skatepark I encountered a resident with thoughts on Wolverhampton, and it seemed like a node, place where a lot of people went through, due to the subway links as the principle means of crossing the ring road as well as destination to skate. Simultaneously I am thinking of printing onto trace and will be test printing next week to see what the resuts are.
