Picturing Thickness: The Creative Process of Imaging Sequencing

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This visual essay is structured as a sequence of imagetexts, which through the bringing together of images and words opens up insights into the Danish landscape Farum Midtpunkt. This we argue, pushes imaging towards new conceptions as a research method embedded in the specificity of place and its change over time. Strung together, the sequence of imagetexts create a thick description bringing together past and present intentions, impressions and reflections in and on the site through a gathering and rendering – or (re)presenting – of Farum’s landscape. This approach is inspired by the picturing of dur- ation, visual-descriptive walks, and projective imagery as a contributor to emergent realities. We thus work towards establishing the imagetext sequence as a methodology of picturing thickness which bridges histor- ical and experiential perceptions providing a new approach to fieldwork in landscape architectural research and practice.
