Visions

Home

TETI is particularly interested in the experience and representation of changing urban environments within the historical transitional period associated with trans-industriality. First, how do bodies experience the architectures, the sounds, the visual stimulation of the city, and how do people position themselves with regard to the specific modifications it witnessed in the recent past (a broader enquiry would look at how this specific experience might compare with important past evolutions in the urban and the technological field). Second, how are these changes mediated by artistic creations? This axis aims to look at a range of artistic genres, ranging from the visual arts to theatre, poetry and literature, and to analyse the modes through which artworks envision the urban developments and how they affect the cities’ inhabitants. Furthermore, it aims to assess as well as contribute to the capacity of such visions to alter and negotiate the construction of our urban present and futures.

Mapping Baybrook, an interview of Professors Steve Bradley and Nicole King by Michelle Stefano. "From community building to chemical dumping, the industrial urban landscape holds stories of the wonders and the horrors of the history of the United States of America. “Mapping Baybrook” is a collaborative and interdisciplinary exploration of place that blends digital mapping technologies with research into the history and culture of an industrial community in Maryland referred to as Baybrook—a merging of the names of two neighborhoods Brooklyn and Curtis Bay. This community is a mix of diverse but connected neighborhoods located along the southeast coastline of Baltimore City"
