November Chronicle by Meii Soh and Seán Being.

ATLAS* as a propositional forest-making exercise and dynamic documentation process. A response to a week of collective ground-building through walking, listening, storytelling, drawing, watching and reading, body scanning and tremor.

This confluence of ideas is relayed through an atlas assembly video: a curatorial collage where retrospective artefacts from each co-op member come together to talk, make visible, hide, expand, and glue into each other to generate/compose a new tableau of information. The video is accompanied by audio extracts from our tour of Sonsbeek Park, Arnhem by park ranger Jeroen Glissenaar on November 22, 2022.
