Cluster 6 – Mapping with Words

Map illustration by Lina Aastrup. Words by Tilda Dalunde.

Maps function as a way of visualising space. The reduction of lived spatial experience to lines on a flat surface. A thing to own, a document to hold, a tool for navigation. We asked ourselves: what place does words and language have in relation to mapping and placemaking at Lappkärrsberget? For the illustration in the print version of the zine we used maps from 1917, 1971 and 2021, as well as poems where the words in part became substitutes for the topographical information.
