Reflecting upon the spatial, material and multi-sensory aspects of one’s environment
during the Covid-19 Pandemic Quarantine, this exercise serves as a way to document and reflect upon the visceral experience of moving across a residential neighborhood, presenting a diversity of topographies, geographies and experiences for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. An analog or digital Neighborhood Map reflects one’s perceptions of Home.
The objective of this map is to discover how friendly the concrete jungle known as Downey, California is to the pedestrian. The majority of the sidewalks are placed around the entrances to Furman Park, and Rio Hondo Elementary School; the other blocks are “secluded” and do not invite pedestrian circulation by not providing sidewalks.
