Pin(k) A Place is a project that operates on the surface of the forest, overlapping the existing landscape without deleting or modifying it substantially. It is a project, which strives to be reversible; impermanent but at the same time trying to provoke reactions.
By introducing icons to the landscape and engaging the visitors physically and emotionally, it tries to choreograph a relationship in between the visitors and the forest. Thereby, the visitors of the forest become co-authors and an integrative part of this bottom-up investigative research project.
The intention behind this interactive research of people’s perception of the landscape is to understand and document what, where and why people feel most attach to. Doing so the project opens a conversation with the visitor, stimulates their conscious examination of their environment as well as active participation. It locates the individual findings and builds a collectively authored archive of perceptions.
Stepping aside of the classical role as dominant creators and instead establishing a framework wherein the interaction can happen, Pin(k) A Place choose a curatorial way of doing research, trying to improve the understanding of perception of the landscape – searching for the sense of the forest.
