About : Alice Angus and Joyce Majiski created this StoryCube set for Topographies and Tales. They are designed to be played with, used as a thinking tool for ideas about landscape, navigation, myths and  environments, belonging and home.  Pile them up together, throw them like dice, arrange into maps, build into landscapes of stories…

Topographies and Tales is about the relationship between people, identity and place. It unearths local and personal stories and myths exploring how concepts of landscape are shaped by ideas of belonging and home.

It is a personal exploration of the intimate way people form relationships with their environments, it takes a journey through the tall tales and perceptions the artists encountered on their travels in the west of Scotland and the Yukon.

Topographies and Tales was a long term collaboration between Alice Angus and Canadian artist Joyce Majiski, that included a film, creative lab and publications. The collaboration began in 2003 in Ivvavik National Park in the Canadian Arctic then in Glenmore Lodge in the Cairngorm Mountains, Scotland, the Klondike Institute for Art and Culture in Dawson City, Canada, Joyce’s Tuktu Studio in Whitehorse and the Proboscis Studio in London.

About : For the Voz/Voice exhibition in Whitehorse (2009) I invited viewers to participate in my installation Canto; 10 etched copper cylinders which turn like prayer wheels. Each wheel related to an endangered species, space or culture. Viewers were asked to add their “wishes or prayers” and this eBook is a compilation of the notes they left in each wheel. Images printed from the etched copper plates before they were rolled into the cylindrical wheel appear alongside the notes.

The Postcard Places Project by Lisa Hirmer with Laura Knap
Submitted by on October 20, 2009 – 9:59 pm2 Comments

DodoLab-Postcard_Places_cover

Download A4 | US Letter PDF 4.5Mb

About : In August of 2009, Dodolab was invited by the Confederation Centre of the Arts to Prince Edward Island to respond to issues surrounding the Experimental Farm in Charlottetown. During our discussions about the future of this large parcel of picturesque land, the concept for the Postcard Places project developed out of an interest in the relationship between iconic landscapes and a place’s sense of identity.

Published October 2009

Lisa Hirmer has both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Architecture from Waterloo Architecture Cambridge. She joined DodoLab after completing a thesis about the significance of nature and wilderness in contemporary culture, particularly within a Canadian context. She currently splits her time between working with DodoLab and more traditional work as an Intern Architect. As an emerging landscape photographer, she is particularly interested in sites where the relationship between human intervention and natural process is ambiguous and complex. She recently won an Ontario Association of Architects Award of Excellence for her landscape photography.

Laura Knap has an education in architecture from the University of Waterloo, Canada. Her work orbits in design, community building, photography, writing, and construction; and focusses on the agency, imagination and inhabitation of green spaces; as well as questions of sustainability.

Perception Peterborough – Underused Assets StoryCubes by Proboscis
Submitted by on October 29, 2008 – 10:57 amOne Comment

Download A4 only PDF 3.9Mb

About : These StoryCubes were created by Proboscis as part of a pack of ‘Impressions’ for the Perception Peterborough project. The Impressions were created through an Anarchaeology process which Proboscis conducted with over 20 local people in the city during July and August 2008 – uncovering stories, experiences and histories of the city as well as hopes and aspirations for its future. The process sought to raise the voices of people who would not usually be heard as part of a major urban regeneration plan, and form part of a Culture of Listening. The StoryCubes themselves focused on ‘underused assets’ – those things which through conversations, observations, encounters and journeys appeared abundant within the city, yet not used or utilised to their full potential:

  • creative talent of the local population
  • diversity of the local population
  • green spaces
  • the River Nene

Perception Peterborough is a dynamic and creative visioning project which brought together key local representatives with creative thinkers to develop innovative approaches to the challenges and opportunities facing Peterborough. Proboscis was commissioned to develop and lead a series of creative workshops alongside consultants Haring Woods Associates

Published September 2008

Proboscis is a non-profit, artist-led creative studio based in London, UK. The team working on Perception Peterborough were: Alice Angus, Niharika Hariharan, Matt Huynh, Giles Lane, Karen Martin, Carmen Vela Maldonado and Orlagh Woods.

About : These StoryCubes form a key part of the Briefing Pack prepared by Proboscis and Haring Woods Associates for the participants in the Perception Peterborough workshops, held in September 2008. The illustrations and folding cube format were designed by Matt Huynh and are a playful way of engaging with the themes of the project, as well as a creative interpretation of existing policy documents. The black and white illustrations respond to the overarching theme of ‘Environment’, whilst the red panels refer to ‘growth and development of the built environment’; the blue panels refer to ‘green infrastructure and environmental technologies’; and the yellow panels refer to ’social cohesion within a climate of migration’.

Download A4 | US Letter PDF 1.9Mb

AboutAt the Water’s Edge
Finding that so much of her work on human relationships to land and urban space leads to issues around rivers and water Alice Angus is beginning a series of water based investigations exploring different perspectives of what it means to care for the environment and how it can affect the way in which water environments are managed and cared for. The dialogues are being recorded and shared as Diffusion eBooks and StoryCubes. Through encounters, journeys and conversations with people who experience rivers in different ways the series aims to bring the discussion of environmental issues to a human dimension and consider how human creativity, spirituality and inventiveness in everyday life; from city workers to gardeners, urban planners to bus drivers, amateur botanists to academics is both witness to environmental change and fundamental to creating solutions to environmental issues.

A Conversation with Joyce Majiski
Joyce Majiski is an artist, naturalist and river and wilderness guide whose work focuses on the natural world. This eBook includes excerpts from a conversation with Joyce about two rivers; the Tatshenshini and the Firth. Both wilderness rivers in North Western Canada.

Published August 2008

Alice Angus, co-director of Proboscis, is an artist inspired by rethinking concepts and perceptions of landscape and human relationships to the land. Over the last six years she has been creating a body of art work exploring concepts proximity and remoteness, technology and presence, against the lived experience and local knowledge of a place. In 2003, Alice was the only non-Canadian to participate in the first Artist in the Park residency in Ivvavik National Park in the Northern Yukon, organised by Parks Canada.

Liquid Geography (2002-2006)
Submitted by on September 6, 2007 – 6:03 pmNo Comment

Liquid Geography, a Proboscis research theme exploring contemporary perceptions of geography, territory and landscape, includes two series of eBooks inspired by the way people map and define their environment, share and connect their knowledge and experience.

Series 3 adds to the previous series of Topographies and Tales commissions, adding new voices of partners and collaborators.

Series 2, Topographies and Tales, was commissioned alongside the Topographies & Tales project in March 2005. Topographies & Tales is a project concerned with relationships between people, language, identity and place and includes a short film, set of StoryCubes and a two day Creative Lab with Canada House. The project research took place as part of collaborative ventures in Scotland with Glenmore Outdoor Education Centre; in London in the Proboscis Studio; with the Canadian High Commission in London and in Dawson City, Canada with the Klondike Institute of Arts and Culture.

Series 1, Landscape & Identity; Language & Territory, were part of a collaboration with inIVA (the Institute for International Visual Arts) Proboscis commissioned four new eBooks on the themes of Landscape & Identity; Language & Territory in 2002. The focus of the eBooks is an exploration of how uses of media and new technologies can transform our perception of other societies and cultures, territories and places, and provide enabling tools which are a catalyst for the development of new ideas. They act in tandem with a series of Creative Labs held by Proboscis and INIVA to explore these questions. The Landscape & Identity; Language & Territory eBooks and Creative Labs were a demonstration of the possibilities for collaborations between the arts, academia and civil society organisations using new media and technology. They aimed to extend understandings and establish models of how artists and designers creative use of technologies can link and strengthen cultural and civil society agendas.
