Rethinking the sensorial in "Emotional Cartographies": Sensing Emotions, Mapping Process and Semantics

AuthorsMarkovic, Nevena
Issue DateJun-2020
CitationInternational Conference on Sensory Transformations (2020)
AbstractThe poster explores Emotional Cartography, an additional concept in cartography, methodology which reunites science, technology and art, theory and practice, and empowers “Reflection-In Action” (Nold, 2009). Going beyond georeferencing emotional states in a certain geographic area, such cartography is not only about emotions, but also senses, experiences, perceptions, memories, and identities. It is a way of imagination and production of territory by multiple, collective, views –miradas territoriales (Wood, 1992). In the era of “Turns”, and building on Emotional Geography (Davidson J, Bondi, Davidson, & Smith, 2007), the posterrethinks Emotional Cartography as an allegory in terms of representation and semantics, both (carto)graphic and cognitive. By looking at mapping practices and meanings, the correlation between emotional, cultural and social, spatial, and digital, it traces mapping approaches to hidden layers of places, imbued with memories, heritage and emotions. Drawing on the dataset –“the Corpus of Emotional Cartographies”, it reflects on the “State of Practice” of this emerging field: first, methods and techniques of mapping process, representation, and interpretation; and second, the semantics and fluidity of terms and conceptions identified in the dataset, and listed in “Emotional Mapping Lexicon”. Ultimately, by sensing and mapping the spatial politics of emotions, using ethnographic methods such as walking methodologies (Truman & Springgay, 2018), Emotional Mapping is tested as a tool for reflexive (spatial) thinking in heritage, as a part of a deeper understanding of mapping as a practice, research method, and metaphor. Relying on sensory and collaborative ethnographic techniques for creating maps as an accumulation of ̔multi-layered stories̕(Wood, 2012), it argues for the integration of subjective spatial narratives towards the negotiation of place.
