Reorientation - putting on different kinds of hats

Through my research I have found out that this landscape around Nikel is really special, tragic, emotional and contradictory. It has many different layers of interaction and the overlapping of these different landscapes really changes depending on how we define what spaces are interconnected and form landscapes that are overlapping each other. Through this time of research and doing exercises of mapping the landscape it's possible to see how all things in this landscape are equally important to take into consideration. It’s important to know what’s going on in the landscape, where things come from and how things interact. These spaces are all equally important to understand the landscape, and it’s important to look at situasions going on in the spaces with openness and different kind of hats on our head to see it from different angles and points of view.

In this mapping exercise I’m using pervious investigations that I’ve done on the landscape and the spaces in them to find new ways of seeing and finding out how this landscape in Nikel is overlapping. After the methodological and descriptive investigation on the spaces I had defined, I was able to see clearly how spaces from different landscapes were interconnected in a really logical way. I started to put the spaces together and defining new landscapes and then look at how they are overlapping each other in different ways.
