It was business as usual at the BYPASS LAB with Kiran Keswani taking the floor on “Mapping the everyday life”. She shared her insights from various mapping exercises and workshops conducted by CEPT. From the socio-cultural-economic practices that point towards the symbiotic relationship between cow existence and the street life, to’ Gender, Urban space and resting places’, she discussed how the everyday is shaped by life on the street
Karl Beelan then presented a short session which focused on how maps could be used to visualize data and present complex narratives. Maps can be used to make sense of the different forms of narrative from various fields. He also spoke briefly about the various resources that were shared by IGCS on the server and the book on the idea of mapping.
The rest of the day was spent in studio-time for the teams, who shifted their focus to the grand ‘production’ outcome of the workshop. As the days go on, the discussions are heating up!
